DIRECTIONS

  • Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Combine tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, ketchup, lime juice, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in medium bowl; set aside. Cut shrimp into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add tomato mixture and cook until liquid is slightly thickened and tomatoes begin to break down, 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, stir in shrimp and cook until shrimp are just opaque, about 2 minutes.
  • Brush 2 rimmed baking sheets (line with foil for easier clean-up) with 2 tablespoons oil (1 tablespoon per sheet). Arrange tortillas in single layer on prepared sheets (6 tortillas per sheet). Brush tops of tortillas with remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Divide Monterey Jack evenly among tortillas, then top with shrimp mixture. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, until cheese melts and edges of tortillas just begin to brown and crisp, 7 to 9 minutes.
  • Garnish with your choice of suggested toppings: lettuce, avocado, cilantro, pico, salsa, red onion and/or hot sauce, then fold tacos in half. Transfer tacos to platter. Serve, passing lime wedges separately.
