  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 /2 serrano chile, chopped, seeded
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon tequila
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped

  • 1/2 lb. shrimp, any size
  • 8-10 corn or flour tortillas
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tomato, diced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place cilantro and the next 7 ingredients (cilantro through garlic clove) in a blender or food processor with salt and pepper, and process until smooth. In a sealable bag, add the shrimp and the cilantro mixture. Shake bag to coat shrimp well. Marinate in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.

Place tortillas on 2 large baking sheets. Divide cheese amongst each. Bake for 2-3 minutes until cheese melts.

In a large skillet up to medium-high heat, add olive oil. Add shrimp mixture to pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes for cooked shrimp. Add additional 2 minutes for raw shrimp. To serve, divide shrimp amongst the tortillas. Serve tacos with tomatoes and lime wedges.
