1 1/4 pounds raw shrimp
1 clove garlic, chopped
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of red (cayenne) pepper, or more if you like it spicy
1/4 tsp paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
1 red bell pepper, sliced in strips
1 green bell pepper, sliced in strips
1 small onion, chopped lengthwise
6 large flour tortillas
Shredded Cheddar-Jack cheese
1. Drizzle olive oil in a hot saute pan. Cook garlic in oil for 1 minute. Add raw shrimp (tails and shells removed.) Season with cayenne, paprika, salt, and pepper. Once shrimp is pink, remove from pan.
2. Drizzle more olive oil in pan and add chopped onion and peppers. Season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until veggies are tender (onions will begin to brown).
3. Add shrimp back to the pan and continue to cook all ingredients for a few minutes for flavors to combine.
4. Spoon fajita mixture into flour tortillas and top with shredded cheese and sour cream.
Alissa's notes: All you need to complete this simple meal is a margarita!!! Makes great leftovers, too! You could also top these fajitas with some salsa or guacamole.
