Introducing 15 Minute Dinners: Shrimp Tacos

We’ve all been there. The days where you’re absolutely exhausted and knowing that the night will be equally as long. There’s a constant temptation. To pull over and sit in the drive thru, knowing that the nagging hunger can’t quit. But what if there was a better option? I’ve been right there with you and have given into that temptation more often than I would like to admit. (Yes I’ve totally survived on salads from the deli section and the drive through over the past school year. It’s something I’m super thankful to curb.) Meet the 15 Minute Dinner. You can make this recipe faster than time you sit in drive thru at In-N-Out. Sounds good? We thought so.

15 Minute Dinners: Shrimp Tacos


  • 1 8 oz container non-fat plain organic greek yogurt
