Shrimp Fajitas are super easy to make and delicious!

You will want to put these on your permanent rotation, they’re that good.

I made a homemade fajita seasoning that only takes a few minutes. You need:

  • Chili powder
  • Cumin
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Oregano
  • Black pepper

All you need to do is add the ingredients to a bowl and stir. It’s that easy!

How to make Shrimp Fajitas:

The first thing I did was make the fajita seasoning.

You need raw, peeled and deveined shrimp. Add the shrimp to a bowl and mix with the fajita seasoning.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. I use a nonstick skillet so I don’t have to waste points on oil.

Instead, I use olive oil cooking spray. It has the taste of olive oil without the extra calories.

I used two bell peppers for this recipe, one red and one orange. You can use whatever colors you like.

Cut the bell peppers and a small onion into strips. Let them cook for 5 minutes, until they’re somewhat soft.

Next, I pushed the peppers and onion to the side of the pan and added my shrimp.

Cook the shrimp for 2 minutes on each side or until they’re no longer translucent.

I added the juice from 1/2 of a lime then mixed together the shrimp and peppers.

The points for this recipe do not include the taco shells. There are so many different brands you can use so I just did the points for the shrimp filling.

All that’s left to do is add your favorite toppings!

I like to add fat free sour cream, cilantro or Pico de Gallo.

Avocado or guacamole is also delicious. Just make sure you check and add any extra points.
