It’s the second Thursday of the month and  that means it’s time for the #ImprovCooking food blogging group,  hosted by Nichole  Little to come together and create recipes using two  unique ingredients.

This month it is all about avocado  and  lime. And  I thought an avocado  lime crema would be fantastic on some  grilled shrimp tacos- because even though  it  is Thursday, we can  still eat tacos, right? I can eat them any  day of  the week!

It  is yet another excuse for me to fire up the grill,  which I  love to do. But unlike using the smoker which can  take all day (and sometimes into  the night) these easy to make shrimp tacos grill up  in just a few short  minutes.

The crema is also very easy to  spin  up in the food processor with just a few simple ingredients.
