Tasty Tuesdays: Shrimp Tacos with Chipotle Sauce

Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!
I'm excited to have my sister here today sharing her shrimp tacos.  I've actually been wanting to make this recipe since she posted it on her blog, A Little Ditty.  Last week was a little hectic at work and getting ready for vacation, so I thought this would be the perfect opprotunity to have her come over and guest post.  Here she is...
I'm excited to be guest posting today!  I hope you guys like this recipe, it's become a favorite of mine and it's so easy to make.
I've been loving Chipotle Peppers lately! I've made everything from pulled pork to pasta salad using chipotle peppers, seems like P Dubs is in a chipotle mood lately too, two of my recipes came from her! I found this awesome recipe for Shrimp Tacos and the real kicker to them is the chipotle and sour cream sauce. It takes the tacos to a whole other level! These are very simple to make, here's the lowdown:

- Frozen Raw Shrimp, amount can be variable, figure 4-5 shrimp per taco
- 2 limes
- Old Bay seasoning, Pepper, Jane's Krazy Salt, Chili Powder
- One small chipotle from can, minced
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- Corn tortillas
- Cabbage shredded or prepackaged coleslaw mix
- Avocado and guacamole seasoning, optional
Begin by thawing the shrimp, this can easily be done by soaking in cold water for 5-8 minutes. When the shrimp are defrosted, pat dry and sprinkle the seasoning on them, you can be generous with your seasoning! I like them spicy personally, so I load on the spices.

Set the shrimp aside for a moment so you can put the sauce together. Mix the sour cream, chipotle pepper and juice from half a lime in a bowl. (At this point I whip up the guacamole as well, that is completely optional though, I am just a guacamole freak and eat it with every meal possible!) Now set this aside and heat a skillet for cooking the shrimp.

The shrimp will cook fast (about 3-4 minutes each side or less), when they are almost done sprinkle more fresh lime juice over them.

Now, time to assemble the tacos. I put a little of the special chipotle sauce and guac.
