Sweet onions and shrimp meet the gentle heat of garlic and chiles. Prep and Cook Time: about 35 minutes. Notes: Vegetables can be cooked up to 2 hours ahead, then reheated. Serrano chiles can be very hot, so add to taste. To heat tortillas, wrap in a kitchen towel and microwave until warm and soft, about 60 seconds.

  • Melt butter in same frying pan over medium-high heat, add garlic, and stir until sizzling, about 1 minute. Add half of shrimp to pan. Stir often until shrimp are bright pink and no longer wet-looking in thickest part (cut to test), about 5 minutes; transfer shrimp to bowl with reserved vegetables. Add remaining shrimp to pan and cook as above, then return cooked shrimp and vegetables to pan and stir everything together until hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cilantro and salt to taste.

  • Serve shrimp in a large bowl with tortillas (use 2 tortillas, stacked, per taco), accompanied by lime wedges to squeeze over top.
