Honey Lime Cilantro tacos

Oh my gosh, these are the best, you've really got to try them. Way easy and super impressive. The Honey Cilantro lime sauce is the best! I thought it sounded weird, but so yummy. I found a similar recipe on a different website, gave it the Nicole tweak and here is the final product.

These tacos are incredible; sweet, slightly spicy and flavorful!
25 Minutes to Prepare and Cook

1 tsp. Oilve oil
1 large onion, sliced into strips
2 bell peppers, sliced into strips
1 15 oz. can chopped tomatoes
3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 Tbs. cilantro chopped
1 jalapeno (remove seeds if you don't like it hot.)
1 1/2 lb. precooked cocktail shrimp, tails removed
1 lime
4 tbsp. honey
3 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tsp. cumin
salt and pepper to taste
8 tortillas, soft taco size
salsa & sour cream optional

Warm oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, bell peppers, tomatoes and jalapeno along with cumin, salt, pepper half of lime juiced and 2T cilantro chopped. Cook until onions are transparent, about 5-10 minutes. Add shrimp and cook only until warmed through. (The longer they cook, the more they lose water and shrink.) 2 minutes

In a small bowl, combine honey and chopped cilantro with other half of lime juiced. Place shrimp mixture in tortilla and top with a spoonful of the honey mixture. You can top with salsa or sour cream if you wish. Enjoy!
*Note: these tacos can be pretty messy, so you may prefer to eat them with a fork and knife
