    I'm a big fan of regular tacos, and this seems really awesome!

    Similar to local Mex Cafe. We grilled the shrimp with cumin, chili powder, and garlic then coated with cilantro, lime juice, and jalapeño pepper. We also used grilled chicken too (dark meat works best for flavor just be sure to season and smoke well). Top with the sour cream and a nice salsa.

    Delicious, light & fresh. I added avocado, of coarse ... avocados make everything better! Definitely use Cheyenne for your "ground red pepper". I used Paprika, not enough kick for me. Served with a black bean and corn salsa for a side (thank you Sarah). Yummy!

    Original recipe is a total waste of effort and ingredients for little to no flavor on shrimp. Only real flavor was the cilantro. Corn tortillas are not sturdy enough. Looking at the other reviews, sure, totally change the recipe (grill shrimp, add seasonings and more ingredients) and you might have something.

    Have to agree with MrOrangeCrocs -- the shrimp really lacks flavor, even after cooking it with the peppercorns and red pepper. I'll stick with my marinated shrimp cooked on the BBQ.

    I tried this recipe twice. The first time I cooked it verbatim to the recipe which ended up being a bit bland. The second time I added more red pepper and used about 1.5 quarts of water (oppose to 3 quarts) to give it more of a kick... waaay more of a success the second time around. So for those of you complaining about not having enough flavor, remember recipes are more of a guideline... it's up to you to create. ; - )
