- Sauté shrimp, with olive oil and minced garlic, in a large pan on medium heat. Season with a dash of black pepper (optional).
- Add taco seasoning to shrimp and stir (you may add a tsp. or so of water if the sauce becomes too thick).
- Once shrimp is thoroughly-coated, remove from heat. Place in a covered serving bowl & set aside.
- Warm tortillas (low-medium heat) in a small, lightly-greased pan (you may use olive oil, lard, butter, or- my personal favorite- bacon grease).
- Create a foil-pouch to keep the tortillas warm while cooking. Once all tortillas are heated, you're ready to start building!
