I love tacos. I love beef tacos, chicken tacos, and vegetarian tacos. I'm starting to sound like my son's book "Dragons Love Tacos." I may have suggested a Dragons Love Tacos birthday party so that I could set up a taco bar. But unlike the dragons in that book, I love spicy tacos.

These tacos are loaded with flavor. The shrimp is marinated in a mixture of chipotle chili powder and lime juice, then sauteed. The Mission Organics tortillas are topped with a homemade pineapple slaw and sliced avocado.

I love cooking with shrimp because they cook so quickly, which makes these tacos a great meal for busy weeknights. The pineapple slaw can be made up to a day ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator.

Serve with cilantro brown rice, black bean and corn salad, marinated cherry tomatoes, or chipotle-roasted sweet potatoes for a full meal!
