Loaded Shrimp Fajita Bowls

I got such a great response when I posted my Chicken Burrito Bowl with Cilantro Lime Rice that I decided to do a similar type of Mexican main dish. These Loaded Shrimp Fajita Bowls have that same deconstructed vibe. They’re an awesome option if you’re craving something Mexican but don’t want anything heavy with tortillas, rice and beans. They are made with napa cabbage, stir-fried peppers and onions and chili-spiced shrimp and super easy to put together.

Loaded Shrimp Fajita Bowls are a low-carb fresh and flavorful meal made with napa cabbage, stir-fried vegetables, guacamole, sour cream and a side of corn!

If you’re watching your carb intake or your calories, this is such a bomb meal to have that will keep you full and your tummy happy! If nothing else, the colors alone are just so pretty to look at! :)))
