Quick and Healthy Mexican Dinner

The meal idea I’m about to describe to you all started when I purchased a jar of Newman’s Own Pineapple Salsa.  Someone had mentioned to me that this salsa brand was very low in calories and tasted delicious!  Of course I had to try it!  After searching for and finding healthy, low carb, tasty tortillas I was ready for a Mexican Fiesta!

Knowing that I had some shrimp in the freezer and that it’s also low in calories, I had to make shrimp tacos.  First I marinated the shrimp in fresh lime juice, salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, paprika and 1/2 a jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed, just for a few minutes while I prepared the other ingredients.  Then, I just sauteed up some sliced yellow peppers, red onion along with the marinated shrimp, piled that on a couple of tortillas I heated right on the burner of my gas stove, topped them with salsa, a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of green onion, rolled them up and ate them.

Absolutely delicious!  And healthy!  This was a quick and easy weeknight meal that was really packed with flavor!

I hope you give this a try using the flavors and ingredients you like.  Of course I would recommend trying the Pineapple Salsa-Enjoy!
