Cilantro-Chipolte Shrimp Tacos topped with Salsa, Lime Sour Cream, & Queso Fresco

Tortilla Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 cup amaranth flour
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 teaspoon xantham gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water
Shrimp Ingredients:

  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deviened 
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon chipolte powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • salt & pepper, to taste
Lime Cream Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
More toppings:

  • 1 cup spicy salsa
  • 1 cup crumbled queso fresco 
First we are going to make the tortillas. Whisk together flours, baking powder, xantham gum and salt. Mix in shortening and water. Roll into 4 inch round circles. Heat a pan over medium heat with a little bit of olive oil. Once hot, add in tortilla. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Repeat until all tortillas are cooked.

Whisk together light sour cream, lime juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Wrap and place in fridge while we cook the shrimp.

Heat avocado oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook for about a minute. Add in shrimp, lime juice, and season with salt and pepper. Once shrimp is almost cooked, season with chipolte powder, paprika, cilantro, and dried oregano.

Time to assemble the tacos! Fill tortillas with shrimp, then top with salsa, lime cream sauce, and crumbled queso fresco! Enjoy!!!
