Welcome to Cooking For One Recipes [2]!  This series is designed for those of us who don’t need recipes for big meals- just enough for one person to eat without a ton of leftovers.  Or, if you are feeding a large family, you can certainly alter the recipes to whatever amount of people you need!

For those of you who use Pinterest [3] I have created a board that will have all the recipes from this series.  Be sure to follow it [3]!

This recipe for Shrimp Fajitas is simple and easy to do.  Plus the ingredients freeze well so you make this twice.
