Food Truck Style Soft Tacos:

I like to make these two versions of Soft Tacos using a cast iron skillet(Regular pan will work too)

On the left is Spicy Shrimp Soft Tacos using our Spicy Garlic Oil. Just saute peeled, thawed shrimp in our Oil at high heat. Shrimp should be done in 5mins. Place Shrimp on warm, soft tortilla and add Sour Cream, Chopped Avocado & Tomato Salsa. Top with shredded Cheese and squeeze fresh lime to finish.

The other version of soft Taco is made with "Carne Picada"(chopped steak) sauted in our Spicy Oil with sliced onions, topped with cheese, sour cream, and one of our Delicious Hot sauces. I prefer our Chipotle Hot Sauce with this dish as it adds a nice sweet smoky flavor, but if you are brave-use our XXX Hot Habanero Hot Sauce. Wash it down with an ice cold Beer!
