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!!

      Super fast and easy to make, and my incredibly fussy partner and daughter actually ate it!!

      I didn’t use the chilli, to accommodate my daughter, but served ours with a teaspoon of hot chilli sauce and it was perfect.

      I have a couple of questions about this recipe. I can’t wait to try it, but…

      The recipe says “Yields 4”. Is that 4 servings? But the recipe calls for 5-6 tortillas. So is it 4, 5, or 6 Servings?

      I really can’t wait to try this recipe, just a little confused on the servings.

      My husband and I both loved these shrimp fajitas. Clever idea and so very easy to make in a sheet pan. I wanted a little extra seasoning on the shrimp after cooking so added more salt and a Mexican blend called Tajin. Cooked the peppers and onions a little longer than suggested, after shrimp was cooked and removed. Served with salsa, and wishing we had avocado. The wild caught Argentinian shrimp from Trader Joe’s were perfect.

      This recipe is fantastic! We used a red onion instead of white, and 1/2 T chili powder in stead of 1 tablespoon, but otherwise everything was the same. We also sprinkled a little freshly squeezed lime juice on the fajitas (we have a tree!) which added a nice zing. So delicious that the two of us ate the entire recipe. 🙂 Thanks, Brittany!

      Made this recently and it came in the nick of time to save Taco Tuesday which was getting quite boring. It was easy and delicious! Definitely did not come out as pretty as yours (lol) however it did the trick to stir up Taco Tuesday. Definitely will make this again. Thank you for the inspiration.

      This looks delicious. I love a sheet pan dinner. They’re usually a favorite with the kids and definitely a favorite with me because there aren’t a whole lot of pots to wash. The flavors look yum.

      Anything I can make it one pan is a wi! These look delicious, and you can do so much with the toppings! I’m thinking I’d add some mango and greek yogurt for sour cream. Yum!

      1. Brittany Mullins
        April 21, 2017 AT 8:07 am

        All of those additional toppings (especially the mango) sound amazing. You’ll have to let me know how they turn out!
