These Crock Pot Fire Roasted Tomato Shrimp Tacos are easy to make and full of Mexican-inspired flavor for a healthy meal everyone will love. Serve them in gluten free tortillas! 


Units Scale
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed (fresh or frozen then thawed) (see notes below for fresh shrimp)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil (or avocado oil)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped (about 1/2 to 2/3 cup)
  • 14.5 ounce can fire roasted stewed tomatoes (diced work best)
  • 1/2 cup chunky salsa
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder or ancho chili powder (see notes for substitutes)
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika or cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro (extra for plating)
  • Optional toppings – chopped green onion, sour cream, avocado, jalapeño pepper, etc.
  • Tortillas to serve (gluten free corn tortillas or grain free low carb tortillas)



Filling Tips  – For thick taco filling be sure to use a chunky salsa with lots of vegetables, not a pureed or restaurant style salsa. If you don’t have chili powder, you may use a taco seasoning or other Mexican seasoning of choice. Be sure there are no added gluten-containing ingredients.

Storage/Meal Prep Tips – If not serving right away, let the shrimp taco filling cool then store in an airtight container in fridge for up to 3 to 4 days. To reheat, warm taco filling on medium low on stove top or place back in slow cooker on warm setting. For instant pot version, see blog post.
