Tequila Chili Lime and Shrimp Tacos

Oh, SO delicious.  My new favorite go-to shrimp fajita recipe.

Tequila Chili Lime and Shrimp Tacos
from The Pescetarian and the Pig

Shrimp and Marinade:
16 medium raw shrimp
1/2 cup lime juice
2 oz tequila
1 tbsp red chili pepper flakes
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp minced garlic

4 flour tortillas
shredded lettuce
chopped tri-color peppers
chopped fresh cilantro
grated pepper jack cheese

Whisk together lime juice, tequila, chili powder, red chili pepper flakes and garlic together.  In a small bowl or resealable bag, place shrimp and cover with marinade.  Allow to marinate, covered, for 15 minutes.  Meanwhile, prepare taco ingredients.  Pour marinade and shrimp into a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat.  Cook 10-15 minutes until shrimp is cooked through.  Remove shrimp into a bowl and cover to keep warm.  Raise the temperature to high and cook sauce until it begins to thicken, about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Assemble tacos and add shrimp.  Drizzle with pan sauce.
