Recipe Tips
I have not froze this meal and have no idea if it would hold up properly.
You can use fresh corn, or drained canned corn as well.
You can omit the beans or swap them for kidney beans.
I left the tail on my shrimp for presentation, but recommend fully peeling.
This meal can be served with warm tortillas or corn chips. 
Non-fat Greek yogurt is also a nice substitute for sour cream. 
If you do not like cilantro, you can use fresh parsley.
