Easy Low-Cal Shrimp Tacos

If you haven’t already figured it out, I have quite the affection for quick & easy recipes that are also budget friendly. I have 3 kids – and I homeschool them.  Time is one thing that I never have enough of!  If only the grocery store sold it – it would make things so muh easier. On days where I am falling incredibly short on time, quick homemade suppers are a necessity.  And a life saver.

Now, if you’re able to make a quick & easy meal that’s budget friendly & is also healthy – you’ve got a super duper winner right there. And, these tacos are just that!  Winner winner shrimp-y dinner 😉

These tacos pack in a ton of flavor, and only weigh in at about 300 calories for 2 of them – so eat up without the guilt!

Here’s what you need.  You could swap out the taco shells for corn tortillas if you wanted, and the cilantro & tomato is totally optional – but man, it packs on the flavor!
