Shrimp Tacos with Hot Sauce - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoine

Shrimp tacos with hot sauce. When I was invited to participate in Tabasco’s #TaquizaTabasco campaign, I thought of Tabasco’s chipotle sauce, one of my all-time favorites, and the one that turned me on to the power of a smoky jalapeño flavor.

Shrimp Tacos with Hot Sauce - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoineMy first thought was empanadas: some stuffed with refried black beans, others with shredded beef, and some with white cheese. I wanted to serve them with guasacaca, mojo, and alioli, with each sauce containing touches of Tabasco: garlic, habanero and, of course, chipotle. Once this thought crossed my mind, I wondered if I wanted to fry empanadas in this hot weather, when I could make some tacos. They’re just as good, and take a lot less work to prepare; my mind was made up.
