Shrimp Fajita Wraps

  • 3/4 pound small shimp (70-90 count)
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 4 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried chipotle chili powder
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • tortillas, lettuce, cheese, and salsa (ok, and sour cream and avocado too, if you're into that sort of thing)
  1. Slice pepper and onion into strips.
  2. Mix all of the seasonings and sugar together.
  3. Toss the shrimp with half of the seasoning mix and set aside
  4. Toss the sliced vegetables in the rest of the seasoning mix in a separate bowl.
  5. Heat a nonstick frying pan over medium to medium-high heat with about 1 tbsp olive oil.
  6. Add the seasoned vegetables and cook, stirring often, until the onions are softened and beginning to carmelize, about 5-10 minutes. Remove the veggies to a serving bowl and cover.
  7. Add another tablespoon of oil to the pan and add the shrimp.
  8. Cook, stirring or flipping them often until the shrimp are pink and curled, about 2 minutes.
  9. Serve the shrimp and veggies fajita-style, or make wraps, or skip the tortillas and just make salads.
