Easy Meals: Shrimp Taco's with a Baja Cream Sauce #SundaySupper #McSkilletSauce

With our busy schedule, easy meals is the name of the game here at my house.  During these cold winter months, I like to keep my family fed well. I want hearty, healthy meals but that don’t take a ton of time and use simple ingredients.

In addition, they have to be kid friendly. I’m busy feeding 5 hungry teenagers and a toddler, so making sure that they’ll eat it is an important part of my quest for recipes.

These Shrimp Taco’s with a Baja Cream Sauce are a popular recipe at our house, but they were made even easier and more delicious using McCormick Taco Skillet Sauce.

I simply cooked the shrimp in half the packet of sauce in the skillet, and then used the other half to make the delicious Baja Cream Sauce. The Taco Skillet Sauce has a bit of a kick from the Chipotle, so it was full of great flavor and just made the recipe even better.

Have you tried the McCormick Skillet Sauces?

I have tried each one of them now, and am absolutely loving the flavors and the different ways they can make a recipe even better.

Shrimp Tacos with a Baja Cream Sauce

Shrimp Taco's with a Baja Cream Sauce

Yield: 6 -8

Ingredients

For Shrimp Tacos:

  • 1 lb. shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ packet, 4.ounces McCormick Taco with Chipotle & Garlic Skillet Sauce
  • Soft Corn or Flour Tortillas

For the Baja Sauce:

  • ½ cup plain yogurt

Instructions

For Baja Sauce:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until combined. It should be pretty runny. It will thicken over time.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. The longer you let the flavors marry, the more amazing the sauce is, so don't be afraid to make it ahead of time. Just remember to refrigerate the remainder of the packet of McCormick Taco with Chipotle & Garlic Skillet Sauce too. I make my in the morning, giving it the whole day to sit and combine flavors in the fridge, then I come home and make the shrimp and dinner is ready in about 20 minutes.

For Shrimp:

  1. In a large skillet, saute the olive oil and shrimp for about 2-3 minutes over medium heat or until the shrimp starts turning translucent in color.
  2. Add a half packet of McCormick Taco with Chipotle & Garlic Skillet Sauce in the skillet and continue cooking for about 15 minutes. Remove and serve.

To Assemble:

  1. Using flour or corn tortillas, layer the veggies and herbs you like on your tortilla.
  2. Add the cooked shrimp on top and drizzle the Baja Cream Sauce over all of it.
  3. Fold and enjoy!
