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
