zippy shrimp tacos!

blog 020

I know I have been MIA for a while but life got kinda crazy for a while–between starting a new job right and dealing with all the craziness that comes with the holidays, I didn’t have that much time to blog. But life, has hopefully settled down once again and I should be back to regularly blogging.

To end 2009 with a bang, I decided my last blog entry of the year should end with some spice–zippy shrimp tacos! These shrimp tacos have just the right amount of heat to light up all the taste buds in your mouth.

11/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
Pinch of cayenne pepper (if you like it spicier, feel free to add more)
