This is a simple recipe that is big on Mexican flavors. Shrimp is used here, but you can also use the marinade of this recipe for steak or chicken fajitas. The Fajita Blend is the only spice needed - it has just the right mix of spices for fajitas - however if you like them slightly hotter, just add 1/4 tsp of Chili Flakes. Either way, this great southwestern treat is one that is sure to please.
