Devilishly named for its crimson hue, this tomato- and chile-based sauce isn’t always spicy. We make our diablo with mild New Mexican chiles so it struts on the cool side of the inferno.

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the shrimp diablo taco filling

  • Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat-dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until almost cooked through, about 3 minutes. Stir in the pinto beans and diablo sauce and cook until warmed through, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. 

While the shrimp diablo is heating, prepare the remaining ingredients. 


Prep the garnishes

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
  • Crumble the queso fresco if needed.
  • Cut the lime into wedges. 


Heat the tortillas

  • Remove 6 [12] tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm 6 [12] tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.


Set out the tortillas, shrimp diablo, cilantro, queso fresco, lime wedges, and pickled jalapeños, if using. Invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
