Dinner in a Snap – Shrimp Tacos

Are you on SnapChat? I’ve been a holdout for a long time because… 1) I just didn’t “get it” and, 2) I was afraid I’d be bombarded with inappropriate snaps, lol. But after a fellow blogger gave me a few awesome tips on how to use SnapChat, I’ve become a little obsessed. More so watching other people’s snaps, but I’m getting better about posting. If you are interested in following me I’m @mym0mmybrain (the o is a zero).

Anyhow… this whole discussion is coming about because I’m super excited about my new series called “Dinner in a Snap”! I will be posting quick dinner entrees via SnapChat. Hope you hop on over there and follow me (from your smart phone)… if SnapChat isn’t your thing, no worries! I will be posting them here for your enjoyment, as well 🙂

My first dinner is one of my favorite meals.

Shrimp Tacos

I have them down to a science now, so when I have the ingredients on hand it really only takes a few minutes to have dinner ready. The most time-consuming part is defrosting the pre-cooked shrimp.

Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!

Saute the cooked shrimp in your favorite salsa until just hot. Be careful not to overcook.

Warm your tortillas for a few minutes in an oven heated to 350 degrees. (Keep an eye on them or they will get too crispy.)

Prepare your toppings. My favorites are cabbage, avocado and red pepper. YUM!

Place some cheese on the tortilla, add your shrimp and veggies, then top it off with some hot sauce.
