Spicy Shrimp Tacos

Dude! This is one of our new favorite recipes! I've honestly never wanted to try shrimp tacos because they just didn't seem to go together, but after giving this recipe a try, we were floored over here at Jalapeno Madness and Chili Pepper Madness. We got some new chili powders and decided to experiment. You'll really want to try this one.
