Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

I don’t think I have ever met a fajitas I didn’t like. Wether it be beef, chicken, or shrimp – I’m there!

This tasty version is made with shrimp. It is also made with one pan and in the oven. This makes clean up a breeze.

I love that it is made with a mixture of seasonings from your own pantry. You can have these babies ready to go in around 20 minutes. I kept the toppings simple by just using a wedge of lime and a little sour cream, but feel free to add cheese, guac, or anything else you’d like on your fajitas!
