Transfer shrimp to a plate. Add the wine and whipping cream to the skillet. Simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Stir in the shrimp and crab; cook and stir until heated through. Remove from heat; stir in the cilantro. To assemble tacos, make eight stacks of two tortillas each. Spoon about 1/4 cup shrimp-crab mixture onto each tortilla stack. Top with some mango-cabbage slaw and avocado. Drizzle with hot sauce, if desired. Blaine Moats Tips *Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
