  1. Lovely recipe! I really dig the simplicity. Dudes, as we both know, are often not the most skilled cooks.

    Also, discovering and experimenting with blender cremas has completely changed my game in the realm of Mexican and Tex-Mex cooking.

    I just threw up my own taco recipe for shrimp tacos, and I thought I’d ask you for a little feedback (should you find yourself with spare time). Chef on, Chef!
