Chipotle Lime Shrimp Tacos with Creamy Avocado Broccoli Slaw via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenGrowing up, I always went over to my bff’s Michelle’s house for taco night and she always came over to my house for pasta night. The Recipe ReDux crew is creating a variety of tacos for Taco Tuesday.

Taco night is one of those quick and easy dinners that many love, but why not reinvent taco night?! Skip the traditional beef tacos and switch it up with shrimp. Love the creaminess with a dollop of sour cream? Try a creamy avocado, lime, yogurt dressing.

Chipotle Lime Shrimp Tacos with Creamy Avocado Broccoli Slaw via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenTacos are so versatile, so this recipe can easily be adapted to fit your families preferences. Don’t love shrimp? Try tilapia if you want to stick to seafood or try it with chicken. Like more spice? Kick it up a notch and add more spices to the shrimp. What I love about recipes is that they are a guide. You don’t need to follow them exactly. That is what’s fun about cooking, you get to be creative in the kitchen!

Maybe marinate the shrimp before you leave for work in the morning or make the creamy avocado broccoli slaw the night before. Don’t worry the lime juice will prevent the avocado from turning brown.
