Buffalo-Sweet Chili Shrimp & Roasted Pepper Baked Crispy Street Tacos
About this Recipe
This dish appeals to lovers of sweet and spicy flavors, shrimp, and of course, tacos! Packed in flavor with a touch of heat, these tacos allow you to savor each bite you dive into.
Tacos can be viewed as comfort food and using soft shell tortillas while making them crispy is the ultimate win in my book. Feel free to use any sweet condiment of your choice; BBQ or sweet chili both work well! Extra small shrimp make it easy to fill and fold the tortillas, but a larger salad size is just as delicious. Keep in mind, cumin, garlic, and oregano could provide added flavor; You can also substitute any dairy-free or regular shredded cheese for your tacos. Just be sure to serve with lots of guacamole!
