  1. Super tasty and easy to make! Note to self for the future: measure the taco seasoning, to avoid salty tongue burn.

  2. Made this recipe for dinner!! It was a big hit.. thanks very easy to make and very inexpensive

  3. I made this last night for dinner for my daughter and I. The dressing seemed really thick, so i added lime juice to the mixture and it was perfect! definitely adaptable recipe that i will go to again. thanks!

  4. Made these last night for the family and everyone loved it. I used lettuce in place of rice, skipped the tortilla strips, and bought cilantro avocado yogurt dressing instead of making it. I will definitely add this to the regular meal rotation!

  5. I don’t even eat shrimp, but with this recipe I’d sure give it a try!
