Double Wrapped Shrimp & Bacon Tacos

Double Wrapped Shrimp & Bacon Tacos

These hold a special place in my heart. Why you wonder? Because they are so stinkin good. Btw you should always have a can of refried beans in your pantry. Bbtw, these were made with the no-fat version and you would never have known. Really.  


Makes about 6

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3/4 lb peeled, uncooked shrimp cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 lime cut in half, then one half into wedges
  • 6 soft corn tortillas
  • 3/4 cup refried beans, warmed
  • 6 hard taco shells, warmed according to package directions
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • Lettuce, shredded
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked, crispy and crumbled
  • 3 green onions, finely diced
  • Cholula hot sauce

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat pan well then add oil and shrimp - stir-fry quickly as the shrimp will cook fast 
  2. When almost done (about 2 minutes) sprinkle shrimp with Old Bay then squeeze juice from the lime half on top 
  3. Give them one quick mix and remove to a bowl alongside the tortillas, beans, sour cream and lettuce, bacon and green onions 
  4. Now simply let people make their own: put some beans on one side of a soft tortilla, the wrap that around a hard shell tortilla
  5. Add some sour cream, some lettuce, the shrimp, some bacon, some green onions and finally a few shakes of hot sauce
  6. Eat – as if that wasn’t fricking obvious

Cheesy Pull Apart Bread

What do you say about bread - sliced & stuffed with cheese, bacon and onion - then drizzled with garlic mustard butter and baked? I say “Oh holy xxxx".


Serves 6

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 round bread loaf, sourdough is ideal for this
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 green onions, white & light green parts only, diced
  • 8 pieces of bacon, cooked & crumbled
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon each oregano and garlic powder
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 350
  2. Score the loaf crosswise and lengthwise into 1 inch squares, cutting almost through to the bottom, but leaving it intact
  3. In a small bowl put both cheeses, garlic, green onions and bacon – mix well and stuff mixture in between all of the cuts (some of it coming out of the top is just fine)
  4. Melt butter in the microwave or a small pot – and add Dijon, sriracha, seasonings and salt & pepper – mix really well and drizzle evenly over the bread, especially over the cuts
  5. Wrap loaf in a couple layers of aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes
  6. Remove from the oven and remove foil to expose the top of the bread
  7. Turn oven to broil and put back in the oven and cook until lightly brown, and the cheese is bubbly
  8. Remove, maybe wait a minute to let it cool and then go nuts eating it
