      High marks for simplicity and overall prep time. Used Old El Paso taco seasoning which ended up having more of a red pepper flake kick than I thought it would, but we like that and are excited to try to find more creative uses for taco seasoning. Luckily left a couple shrimp out for the daughter who doesn't like anything spicy. Definitely get the french bread, three of us finished a whole loaf dipping it into the sauce. Great meal for a busy evening and still feeling like something different.
