Low Carb Spicy Shrimp Tacos

When you bring the flavor, you won’t ever miss the tortilla.

This is such a great option that is completely filling and packed with all the good toppings. I decided to add in some corn to the pico de gallo and boy did it level it up. And the cherry on top is the Everything Bagel seasoning which pairs up perfectly with the tacos.
