Fajitas are pretty popular in Texas, and I have my Texas upbringing to thank for this dish. Fajitas are considered more of a Tex-Mex dish, and typically made with skirt steak, but can be just as delicious with Shrimp or Chicken. I’ve been absent on my blog for a couple weeks, but if you follow me on Instagram you’ll see that we’re doing a major kitchen renovation. I plan on writing a dedicated post for the renovation, but cooking and preparing good meals have been challenging the past few weeks. We were able to install the sink, stove, and dishwasher this week, and I’ve never been happier to have these things! To celebrate I made a delicious and easy dinner of Skillet Shrimp fajitas. These turned out so good, and my leftovers for lunch the next day were just as tasty!
Even though I was excited to have a functioning kitchen back, I decided to cook the Shrimp Fajitas on the grill. I’m sure they will be just as good on the stove or even the oven. Be sure to preheat your skillet so its nice and hot and sizzles when you add the onions and peppers. I love the different colors of bell peppers, it gives the dish a nice vibrant color. You could also add jalapenos to spice it up, but I omitted since my kids were eating with us. Instead my husband and I added some hot sauce on top. Serve the fajitas with warm flour tortillas, guacamole, and a side of re-fried beans. Your family will love this taco night!
