Chili Chipotle Shrimp Tacos w/Lime Crema

Recipe from: Leaving Fatville (love her!)
Prep time: 1 hr 15 mins  |  Level: Beginner  |  Yield: 6 servings (approx)
Calories per serving: 99 (tortillas extra)
(shrimp tacos)
1 lb shrimp
1 tsp of chili powder
1 tsp of chipotle chili powder
1 tbs of canola oil
Pinch of salt and pepper
(lime crema)
1/2 cup sour cream or plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tbs of lime juice
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp of chili powder
1/4 tsp of ground coriander
1/4 tsp of ground cumin
Peel shrimp and add canola oil, chili powders, salt and pepper to a bag. Toss in bag repeatedly until spices are evenly covered on shrimp. Marinate in fridge for 1 hour.
 While the shrimp are marinating, chop cilantro finely and set aside. Scoop 1/2 cup sour cream of plain greek yogurt into a bowl. Add cilantro and rest of ingredients and mix well. (I like heavier coriander in mine because it tastes nice with the lime, but you can taste and flavor accordingly.)
Saute shrimp on medium heat with a lightly greased pan. Saute for 5 to 7 minutes, or until shrimp are completely pink all the way through - you can also grill shrimp on skewers for 3 mins on each side.
Put them on the taco shell of your choice, garnish with lime crema and whatever else you'd like and dinner is served!
Happy Cooking!
