How to Make Shrimp and Bell Pepper Tacos


  1. In medium bowl, combine the thawed shrimp with the cumin, oregano, salt, black pepper and cayenne.
  2. Heat 2 tsp of the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and saute for about 2-3 minutes or until shrimp is cooked through. Remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon.
  3. Add remaining oil to the skillet and add the pepper medley. Saute the peppers for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for about 2 minutes. Drain off any excess liquid. Add the lime juice and cook for 30 seconds. Add back the cooked shrimp and toss to coat with peppers.
  4. Heat the whole-wheat tortillas by toasting them one at a time in a medium skillet over medium heat for about 1-2 minutes per side.
  5. Divide the shrimp-pepper mixture between all 6 tortillas. Fold over, sprinkle with cheese and top with sour cream or yogurt.
