Recipe by DailyInspiration

Another recipe from the Southern Living All-Time Favorites Magazine. The Spicy Cream Sauce uses fat-free sour cream along with spices to jazz up these shrimp tacos. This is on my go-to list of recipes to try.

Very easy and good -- and this recipe uses things I usually have on hand which makes it a great weekday dinner with a salad. The leftover shrimp is also great tossed in a salad for lunch. Thanks for sharing!
