This just in: Tacos can be healthy — while still tasting good. Yes, really. You don't have to sacrifice flavor to save a few calories, and this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week is proof of that. These top-rated shrimp tacos get their craveable bold flavor from a blanket of chipotle powder atop the seafood, which turns tender after just a few minutes on the grill. Skip the usually heavy toppings like cheese and sour cream, and opt for fresh picks instead. This avocado-tomatillo salsa, laced with fresh jalapeno, is just the burst of bright, cool taste and creamy texture to balance the tortilla-wrapped shrimp.
