Today’s Menu: Sweet Pepper, Cilantro and Green Chile Shrimp Fajitas

Shrimp Fajitas 007

 

 

Another cold and windy day, but finally some sunshine mixed in! Busy most of the day. In the morning I went to Kroger for a few items. Then back home to get a few things done around the house. Back out then I had to do Mom’s Christmas Shopping for her, she’s still not up tp par. Doctor said it would just take time. For dinner tonight it’s Sweet Pepper, Cilantro and Green Chile Shrimp Fajitas.

 

I used a packet of the Ortega Cilantro and Green Chile Skillet Sauce. I’ve used this a few times now and love it! To prepare it I used a bag of Kroger Seafood Jumbo Shrimp along with the packet of Ortega Cilantro and Green Chile Skillet Sauce, Delallo Tri-Color Pepperazzi Spicy Sweet Peppers, Chopped Jalapeno slices, fresh Shredded Sargento Asiago Cheese, and Mission Flour Tortillas.

I heated up a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a medium size skillet over medium heat. I started by slicing the Sweet Peppers into strips and adding them to the skillet, stirring them and cooking until tender (about 4 minutes). Stirred in the Shrimp and sliced Jalapenos, stirred this until the Shrimp just started turning pink. Then added the Ortega Cilantro and Green Chile Skillet Sauce, cooking another 4 minutes till everything was heated through. What an aroma coming from the skillet! Heated up the tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds and topped them with Guacamole and the Shrimp Taco Mixture. I also topped it some fresh grated Asiago Cheese, and served. I keep packets of the Ortega Cilantro and Green Chile Skillet Sauce in stock, it makes on delicious Fajita! Had a nice heat to it but not overpowering and the taste of the Ortega Sauce is incredible! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

I rinsed and drained my Shrimp off in a colander. I then heated up a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a medium size skillet over medium heat. I started by slicing the Sweet Peppers into strips and adding them to the skillet along with the Chopped Red Onion, stirring them and cooking until tender (about 4 minutes). Stirred in the Shrimp and sliced Jalapenos, stirred this until the Shrimp just started turning pink.
