Bring Your Family Back to the Table for Taco Night
Try these colorful shrimp tacos for a family dinner with celebratory flair.
As a family, we eat tacos at least once a week. My kiddos love taco night because they get to build their own dinner, garnishing their tacos with their pick of toppings and picking among a variety of tortillas (corn, flour and crispy taco shells). It’s a family tradition I hope our children will treasure long after they leave home.
Although this shrimp recipe includes a splash of tequila, they are perfectly safe to serve to your children as the tequila dissipates when cooked and all that’s left is juicy-plump, flavorful shrimp. With these tacos, I like to put out little bowls of chopped cilantro, crumbled queso fresco, salsa and diced avocados for taco-topping. Serve this meal with black beans and a salad on the side and voila, a complete dinner is done. (Tip: If you’re looking to cut back on carbs, the shrimp is delicious sprinkled over a crisp, green salad!)
Encourage your children to help set the table and set up the tortilla buffet.
