You’re going to love this recipe! Shrimp Fajitas in foil. (No hot plates required!)

If I could, I’d cook everything in foil. But for now, these shrimp fajitas will have to do.

Making fajitas has never been easier than this. Simply toss, wrap and bake. That’s it! And, clean-up is a breeze. Though you’re not going to have the dramatic effect of the sizzling plate, this method creates sizzling tender veggies and shrimp, tossed in a smoked paprika-cumin seasoning and all wrapped in foil. The best part of is that you can bake these or grill them in your backyard. It doesn’t get easier than that.
