It’s Friday! I’m ready for the weekend! Margaritas are on tap for the next few days and it’s time for another easy entertaining recipe…Shrimp Fajitas!! Shrimp Fajitas from (@whatsgabycookin)

It’s 20 minute or less meal, it’s loaded with shrimp, tons of peppers including my favorite smoky poblano and then all the toppings! You can either serve it up over a salad, with rice and beans, wrapped in a tortilla… you name it. Def add some salsa of your choosing, perhaps some guacamole, and sprinkle on a little cheese if you’re feeling jazzy. The result is a perfectly seasoned meal that will 100% make the whole family happy!!

  1. I love this recipe and wanted to make it tonight and I don’t have quick access to go get your fajita mix. Last time I made this recipe you included which spices and their quantities – do you still have that available somewhere?
    Thanks Gaby!
