    Place the shrimp in a medium bowl. Add the chipotles in adobo to a measuring cup or small bowl and use an immersion blender to puree until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon of water if necessary to help puree more easily. Add 2-3 tablespoons of the chipotle puree to the bowl with the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper and toss until evenly combined. Set aside.

    In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp to the pan in a single layer and cook, turning once, just until opaque and cooked through, about 1-2 minutes per side. Remove to a cutting board and let cool briefly. Chop coarsely and add to the bowl with the corn and tomato mixture. Fold in gently until well combined. Assemble tacos with corn tortillas, the cabbage mixture, and the shrimp mixture as desired.
