  • 1 pound peeled, deveined frozen large shrimp, thawed
  • 8 tablespoons salsa
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil plus 1 tbsp.
  • 8 ounces tricolor mini sweet bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 large red onion, halved and sliced
  • 8 whole-wheat tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage
  • 3/4 cup guacamole
  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges


In a medium bowl, toss the shrimp, 3 tbsp. salsa and the chili powder; let sit at room temperature while you cook the vegetables.

In a large skillet, heat 1 1/2 tsp. olive oil over medium-high. Add the peppers and onion and cook, stirring often, until the peppers begin to brown, about 5 minutes; transfer to a plate. Add the remaining 1 tbsp. oil. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook, stirring often, until opaque in the center, about 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the pepper-onion mixture and 1/2 tsp. salt to the skillet and stir until combined, about 1 minute.

Serve the shrimp mixture with the tortillas, cabbage, guacamole, remaining salsa and lime wedges.
