1 Lb. Medium Shrimp, peeled, deveined and tail removed

½ Red bell pepper, cut into strips

½ Yellow bell pepper, cut into strips

½ Orange bell pepper, cut into strips

½ Medium yellow onion, sliced

¼ cup of Olive Oil

3 Tbsp. of honey

3 Tbsp. of limejuice

2 Tsp. chili powder

3 Garlic cloves finely minced

3 Limes, cut in half (one for guacamole and two for serving)

8 Whole Wheat Tortillas, warmed or grilled

Fat Free Greek Yogurt (or sour cream)

Homemade salsa or store bought

Guacamole (recipe)


1. Mix the shrimp, peppers and onions in a large plastic baggie. Mix the oil, honey, limejuice, chili powder and garlic in a bowl and add to the baggie. Seal bag and make sure marinade is covering all the ingredients. Let sit for 20 minutes.
2. Heat a large skillet on the stove. Add the marinated shrimp and veggies to the pan and stir occasionally until the shrimp are cooked through and the veggies are just starting to soften (3-5 minutes).
3. Meanwhile, grill your tortillas or heat them on the stove in a dry pan or try microwaving them using this great item I found at the grocery store (a tortilla warmer). Just put the tortillas in the pouch and nuke for 1-2 minutes. They stay nice and warm and ready to top with the fajita mixture.
4. Top the tortillas with a hefty amount of the mixture and serve with salsa, yogurt or sour cream and fresh guacamole (recipe below). Don’t forget to serve with a half a lime on the side.

Simple Guacamole

1. Cut two avocados in half and remove the pit. Scoop into a small bowl. Season the avocados with salt and pepper and the juice of one lime. Smash with a fork and serve.
