Easy Shrimp Tacos

We don’t get paid until Saturday so I have to be a little creative as to how I am going to make dinner.  Mike and I usually fend for ourselves when it comes to lunch and breakfast, so I really only have to worry about one meal a day.  Thankfully, last night I was able to run up to Chick-Fil-A for some dinner, which makes it easier on me!  No dishes! Yay!

On Sunday I missed out on my mother in laws cooking (that I was totally depending on!) due to the fact that we slept through dinner, so I had to check out what was in the fridge and freezer and noticed a frozen bag of shrimp and some corn tortillas.

I came up with these little beauties.  I sautéed some shrimp in a skillet with a little bit of garlic olive oil and added a dash of garlic salt to give flavor.  The best part of shrimp is that it holds flavor really well (just like mushrooms). I warmed up some corn tortillas, added some shrimp sauce, and put some cole slaw mix as a topping.  So easy and so good.

Now here’s the best part.  I was able to make a really good sauce made with random ingredients from the fridge.  I originally was going to try salsa, but we were out of it, so this is what I came up with:

Easy Shrimp Taco Sauce

3/4 cup of mayonnaise or miracle whip

1/2 cup of relish

2 tbsp of taco seasoning mix

1 tbsp of lime juice

2 tbsp of hot sauce

I wanted to add the hot sauce for a little kick and wish I added a little more, but it was good stuff!
