Soft Shell Shrimp Tacos

Remember that Red Hot Relish? Here is a fantastic use for it. I sauteed some shrimp, warmed some soft flour tortillas, and added fresh cilantro and avocado. (Of course, you could use this relish on a pork, chicken or beef taco, too!) BOOM! A very simple dinner that is healthy and delicious!

(Nutritional data will vary with the tortillas, how much avocado is used and if you add anything else.)
