Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry. While traveling in Mexico with our 4 small children, we sampled many different types of tacos – it seemed that each Mexican city that we visited had its own special flavors and fillings. Our favorites were the shrimp tacos – sometimes spicy, sometimes sweet. We ate them topped with so many inventive salsas made from fruits like mango, pineapple or tomato to veggies like cucumbers or any of the infinite types of peppers available in Mexico, to the very simple shrimp tacos heaped with fresh herbs or avocado. Back home, I began toying with shrimp tacos and have served them dozens of ways. This version is a favorite among family and friends and is very adaptable and super easy to do for a crowd – that’s always fun!
