    Shrimp Fajitas

    These are sooo good and easy. I like to double the sauce/spice mixture since i bulk up the veggies and i like it juicy. The green onions are a nice change and have also added asparagus and/or mushrooms since hubby wont eat the peppers. If you like more heat I would add in cayenne or even halved jalapeños (cook along with the shrimp) to the shrimp marinade, it is pretty mild otherwise.

    I have to say.... I decided to make my fajitas the other day being lazy and used the packet you get on the seasoning aisle at the store.... NEVER again. Made another batch tonight using this recipe, something I should have done before.... Omg soo much better! To be heathy we have been eating this over spring salad mix along with tomatoes, salsa, and plain Greek yogurt. (which when mixed in tastes just like sour cream)
