I’m seriously in denial that it’s almost May, but I’m also excited for all the spring/summer festivities coming up! Especially Cinco de Mayo. I mean, who doesn’t love holidays that involve tacos and palomas?

That said, I’m really pumped for today’s post because I’ve teamed up with some of my friends to bring you six Mexican recipes that are easy AND healthy. They’re perfect for celebrating on May 5th, but honestly you can add these to your recipe collection and use them whenever a craving for Mexican hits.

When we go out to a Mexican restaurant I always order one of two things — a salad (our favorite local spot has the best shrimp and avocado salad) OR fajitas. Fajitas are the best for two reasons 1. They come to the table sizzliiiinnnggg and 2. Loading up the tortillas with all the toppings is super fun.

I love playing with my food so anytime I can order a build your own meal like fajitas or make-your-own-spring-rolls, I’m in!

This recipe let’s you recreate the fajita experience at home, but without dirtying up a bunch of dishes. You cook your shrimp and veggies in the oven on a single sheet pan while prepping your toppings. It’s easy peasy and takes less than 30 minutes!

When it comes to the tortillas, I get asked often what brand I recommend. Usually I look for whole-grain corn tortillas with minimal ingredients, but these are usually small and not great for wrapping fajitas. For fajitas I like the Food for Life sprouted-grain tortillas or La Tortilla Factory’s organic tortillas. I’ve been dying to try the grain-free tortillas from Siete Foods, but haven’t had a chance yet.

That said, tortillas certainly aren’t the star of this recipe. You can load the shrimp and veggies on a big bed of greens and make yourself a fajita salad and it will be absolutely delicious. I know this for sure because that’s what I did with the leftovers!!
