Mini Chipotle Shrimp Tacos with Cumin Sour Cream

These adorable mini two-bite tacos are the perfect appetizer to serve at a party (gameday or otherwise!).

The spicy shrimp filling cooks up quickly and gets lots of flavor from chipotle adobo sauce (one of my fave go-to ingredients) and a cool cumin sour cream sauce.

To make the mini taco shells, just use a 3" cookie cutter on regular tortillas. I used flour tortillas for these, but you can definitely use corn, too!

I know it seems a tiny bit tedious, but you can stack up the tortillas and cut them all I once--takes seconds! And the adorableness makes it totally worth it.

Now all you're missing is an equally adorable tiny margarita, huh?
