Mexican Shrimp Bowl

I am trying to use up what I already have in the house so I threw this together last minute! I wanted to share how easy it is to create a delicious Lean and Green meal in less than 20 minutes!

One thing I always have in the freezer is shrimp! I absolutely love shrimp and it also just happens to be a Leanest Lean so it allows me to use 2 additional Healthy Fats. Yes! I also tend to have bell peppers in the fridge. They are so good and can be used a variety of ways such as stuffed bell peppers, as nachos, in fajitas or stir-fry! They are loaded with Vitamin C with a single red bell pepper having up to 169% of the recommended daily requirement of Vitamin C! Such a great way to get that Vitamin C in and boost your immune system, especially during times like the present! I cooked the peppers in the air fryer but they are just as good roasted in the oven. Add the shrimp, peppers, sour cream, guacamole, and salsa and you have shrimp fajitas with all the fixings. but without the tortillas! So yummy!

Mexican Shrimp Bowl

9 to 10 oz raw shrimp, shells and tails removed ~ should yield 7 oz cooked (1 Leanest Lean)
1/2 tsp Stacey Hawkins Southwestern Seasoning or your favorite taco or Mexican style seasoning (1 Condiment)
1 1/2 sweet bell peppers, sliced (about 1/4 inch) ~ 7.2 ounces cooked (3 Greens)
2 tbsp sour cream (1 Healthy Fat)
2 tbsp guacamole (1 Healthy Fat)
2 tbsp red salsa (2 Condiments)

Lightly spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Add shrimp and season with Southwestern seasoning. Cook shrimp over medium high heat for about 5 to 6 minutes or until pink and cooked through. Place shrimp in a bowl.

While shrimp is cooking, add sliced sweet bell peppers to an air fryer. Cook at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through. You can also roast them in the oven at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. Add peppers to the shrimp bowl. Then add the sour cream, guacamole, and salsa to the bowl. Enjoy!
