 I've always been a fajita fan....both the traditional beef or chicken variety.  But, when I ran across a shrimp fajita recipe, I knew I had to give it a try.

Not only does this have a great flavor, but it really is super simple to pull it together. 


2 tsp. chili powder
½ tsp. cumin
½ tsp. smoked paprika
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. onion powder 
2 Tbsp. cilantro
2 cups sliced pepper (yellow, green, red, or combination)
1 onion thinly sliced
1 lb. large shrimp (peeled, deveined, tails off)
1 Tbsp. oil
lime wedges
flour tortilla
assorted fajita toppings of your choice


Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat.  Add the onions and peppers, and cook stirring occasionally until they're tender and charred on the edges.  Add salt and pepper.

Combine all the seasonings in a small bowl.  Add the shrimp to the skillet and sprinkle the seasoning mixture over while cooking.   Stir well, to coat the peppers and onions with the seasoning.  Cook covered for 4-5 minutes, until the shrimp are pink and opague.  Sprinkle the cilantro and a bit of lime over the top before serving.  

Serve with tortillas and lime wedges.  Don't forget fajita toppings like sour cream, shredded cheese, and avocado.
