This make-your-own-taco bar comes together in 15 minutes or less thanks to some help from the grocery store. Prepared chipotle mayonnaise, pre-cut coleslaw mix and canned beans are time-savers that make it easy to have tacos any day of the week.



lbs medium (26/30) peeled and deveined shrimp, tails removed
tsp chili powder
kosher salt
tbsp canola oil
scallions, thinly sliced
ounce 15-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed well
cup prepared chipotle mayonnaise
limes, 1 zested and juiced and 1 cut into wedges
bag 14-oz bag store-bought coleslaw mix (about 6 cups)
bunch fresh cilantro, leaves and soft stems roughly chopped
sour cream or Mexican crema, for serving
corn tortillas, warmed


Step 1

Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Combine the shrimp, chili powder and a large pinch of salt in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Add the canola oil to the hot skillet and swirl to coat. Add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp is no longer opaque and just cooked through, turning only once, about 2 minutes. Transfer the shrimp to a serving bowl and cover loosely with foil to keep warm.

Step 2

Stir 2 tablespoons of water into the skillet with the dripping, using a wooden spoon or heat-proof spatula to scrape up any browned bits at the bottom of the skillet. Reserve 1 tablespoon scallions for garnish and add the rest to the skillet. Cook until the scallions are slightly softened, stirring frequently, about 1 minute. Add the beans and a large pinch of salt and cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Turn off the heat and reserve.

Step 3

In a large bowl, stir together the chipotle mayonnaise, lime zest and juice and a large pinch of salt. Add the coleslaw mix and half of the cilantro and stir to combine.

Step 4

Serve the shrimp alongside the beans, coleslaw, remaining cilantro, scallions, sour cream or Mexican crema, lime wedges and warm tortillas.
