Blue Ribbon Recipe

These shrimp fajitas were seasoned to perfection and just the right amount for two people. We love the combination of seasoning... slightly sweet and savory with a little spice. A great recipe for a beginner cook looking to treat someone special to an amazing dinner. You'll look like a pro!
