Shrimp Tacos with chipotle sour cream sauce

Raise your hands if you love tacos! Today’s recipe of shrimp tacos with chipotle sour cream sauce is one that I have been wanting to share for a while. Tacos are so much fun because you get to eat them with your hands and it is almost impossible to have a bad taco. Most foodies will tell you that the sauce is what makes the taco which I agree with. For this recipe, I made a chipotle sour cream sauce with Dean’s® DairyPure low-fat sour cream, a little ranch dressing, chives and some chipotle peppers.

As always, I love to use fresh and healthy ingredients whenever I can. For this recipe it was important for me to have good quality ingredients as the meal consists of 80% fresh ingredients like corn, cucumber, tomatoes, shrimp and more. Because I take the sauce very seriously I made sure I used the best sour cream to create a good tasting sauce. DairyPure  makes really good sour cream and the reason I love their products is because of their 5-Point Purity Promise® which means their products have these main 5 benefits:

  1. NO ARTIFICIAL GROWTH HORMONES
  2. ALL MILK IS TESTED FOR ANTIBIOTICS
  3. CONTINUALLY QUALITY-TESTED TO ENSURE PURITY
  4. ONLY FROM COWS FED A HEALTHY DIET
  5. COLD-SHIPPED FROM YOUR TRUSTED DAIRY

For these reasons this sour cream is good for you and I love that it comes in both regular and low-fat option. I used the low fat option but if you want a creamier sauce definitely go with the regular sour cream.Shrimp Tacos with chipotle sour cream sauce

The only thing I regret is that I did not make more. After dinner I noticed my fiancé Marcus was heading over to the kitchen for seconds only to return with a puzzled look on his face because he thought there would be more. I saved the night by boiling some sweetcorn on the cob but next time I will remember to double the servings.

Dean’s DairyPure Sour Cream can be found at most major grocery stores, I got mine at Shaw’s. Remember to look for the tub container in the sour cream section.
