Shrimp fajitas

We love our Friday nights at home...we either order pizza or make Mexican food and just chill out. This Friday night was no exception and we made shrimp fajitas on a sheet pan following this recipe. To make it slightly easier, I just bought frozen peppers and onions from Trader Joe's and just followed the rest of the recipe for the spices for the shrimp. We also used whole wheat tortillas and added fixings on the side.
