Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 3 bell peppers sliced (I used yellow, red and orange)
  • 2 tsp taco/fajita seasoning divided (I used Ms. Dash)
  • 1 pound medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 6 10 inch whole wheat flour tortillas, warmed

Avocado Salsa

  • 1 1/2 avocados chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt/pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and bell peppers, and half the seasoning. Cook, stirring frequently until peppers looked cooked, but still slightly crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  • Pour the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil into the skillet, and add the shrimp, remaining half of the seasoning and the 1 tablespoon of fresh cilantro. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp is pink and opaque. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  • To make the avocado salsa, mix all the ingredients in a bowl and add salt/pepper to taste. Assemble fajitas by first placing the cooked vegetables on the bottom of the warm fajita, followed by the shrimp and finally the avocado salsa.
