Chipotle Shrimp Tacos with Cilantro Avocado Slaw are the ultimate warm weather meal packed with spicy shrimp, crunchy lime slaw, and creamy avocado all wrapped in a warm corn tortilla. Yum.

Have I told you before about my deep love of shrimp tacos? There is just nothing better than sweet shrimp tossed in smoky chipotle chili powder and packed into warm corn tortillas with crunchy, lime-y slaw and avocado. And the fact that I can make everything in under 20 minutes makes me love this meal even more. Especially as it gets warmer every night, I pretty much only want dinners like this. Something cool and crunchy and refreshing is the perfect remedy for a hot night.

Depending on what you are in the mood for, this recipe can be made with almost any fish or scallops as well. You can also blend the avocado, cilantro, and cumin with a touch of yogurt or sour cream if you prefer a creamy dressing for the slaw.
