These shrimp tacos are a cross between a taco and a quesadilla. They are crispy on the outside with a melty and cheesy interior. Top tacodillas with sliced avocado, a squeeze of fresh lime juice, and hot sauce, such as Tapatio®. Delicious and easy to prepare.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 ¾ cups diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 serrano chile pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound large shrimp - peeled, deveined, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 9 (6 inch) corn tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded pepper Jack cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) and place an oven rack on the lowest position. Brush 2 baking sheets with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil each.
  2. 2 Heat extra-virgin olive oil in a skillet until shimmering. Add tomatoes, onion, cilantro, ketchup, garlic, serrano chile, salt, and pepper; cook until the onions are translucent, 6 to 8 minutes. Add shrimp and cook until shrimp are opaque but not cooked all the way, about 2 minutes; they will continue to cook in the oven. Remove from the heat.
  3. 3 Place 5 tortillas on one prepared baking sheet and 4 on the other. Brush tops of tortillas with remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Divide pepper Jack cheese evenly amongst all 9 tortillas. Evenly divide shrimp mixture on top of cheese.
  4. 4 Bake one sheet at a time in the preheated oven until tortillas start to turn golden brown and cheese has melted, 7 to 9 minutes.
  5. 5 Working as fast as possible, remove tacodillas to a serving platter, one at a time, folding in half like tacos.
