      Well NurseDi, you've done it once again..This recipe is deelish! I did make a couple of changes, but that is only because I didn't read the recipe and fully comprehend it, at first. :) I used large shrimp because that was all I had and cut them in half. Then instead of sauteeing them first and then putting the seasoning on them, I put the seasoning on and then sauteed them in olive oil (personal preference) and oh boy, they were wonderful. So that was a mistake that came out well. I squeezed a bit of fresh lime juice on the shrimp as they were cooking. And I used white corn tortillas that I softened over a pan on the stove. I also sliced up a avacado to go with the tomatoes and lettuce. Yum. All in all these were fantastic. What a refreshing dish! Hubby loved them so much there weren't any leftovers. So this will become a regular around here. Thanks so much NurseDi. All of your recipes are awesome. Hugs, Susie

      I like to put the cheese on the taco and heat for a few seconds in the microwave. This was delicious.
