Quick Rick Bayless Shrimp Taco

October 24, 2013



Do you need a quick weeknight dinner idea? This is my new go-to!!! I feel like I’m cheating by using a pre-packaged sauce however, this is Rick Bayless…why mess with perfection? I’m lucky to be in the same city where I can sample the genius of Bayless’ moles and other sauces. Many of his moles take a multitude of ingredients and lots and lots of time to make. SAVE yourself. This key-lime cilantro taco skillet sauce and shrimp will have your meal on the table within 15 minutes.

Shrimp Tacos

1 onion, thinly sliced

1 poblano chili, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound medium shrimp, peeled deveined

1 pouch Frontera sauce

Garnish: avocado, sour cream, cilantro, lime zest

Heat 1 tablespoon oil and saute onion and poblano pepper til soft. About 4 minutes. Remove top plate. Add 1 tablespoon oil to skillet and add shrimp. Cook until opaque about 3-4 minutes. Combine onion mixture and sauce to pan. Heat til warm. Heat tortillas, add shrimp mixture. Garnish with avocado, sour cream, cilantro and lime zest.

      Most grocery stores carry the line. Jewel, Dominicks and Heinens locally.

    I love your blog! A good “go to” place for new recipe ideas. Your photography is wonderful and I like the step by step instructions (with photos). This recipe is especially appealing since I don’t have much time for cooking these days.

        Sounds great! Let’s try to pin them down. If dinner won’t work, maybe a weekend brunch?

    I made this recipe Friday night. It was so good I made it again today. Jason does his wash here on Sundays and I knew he’d love it. I was right!
