These Shrimp Tacos are my go to supper when I don’t feel like cooking. They are quick and easy to make, taste delicious and have fewer calories than traditional beef tacos. I like to dress them up with diced tomatoes or salsa and guacamole.*

1 | These are also really easy to serve for a crowd. Make up a big batch of the shrimp mixture and put out on the buffet table with the shells and toppings. Then let your guests put their own tacos together.2 | Quick Guacamole If you don't have guacamole on hand, try this quick substitute: Mash an avocado. Mix with an equal amount of plain yogurt or sour cream until smooth.
