Step 1

Mix mesquite marinade with cumin, chili powder, and garlic in large bowl. Add shrimp and mix well with marinade. Allow shrimp to marinade for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Lightly spray a large non-stick or stick-resistant skillet with cooking spray and preheat on medium-high for 3 to 4 minutes. When pan is hot, add onions and peppers to skillet and stir-fry 5 to 8 minutes until onions begin to turn opaque.

Reduce heat to medium, add shrimp with marinade to skillet and stir-fry all ingredients together until shrimp are pink and firm and vegetables are tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

Remove skillet from heat, squeeze with fresh lime and serve with warm flour tortillas.

This recipe yields 6 servings.
