  • 2 teaspoons chipotle pepper
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon oregano

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil. Set aside for now.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, add sliced red bell pepper and green bell pepper, sliced onions, roughly torn mushrooms, chipotle chili pepper powder, paprika, dried oregano, garlic powder, pinch of salt and pepper, and olive oil. Toss until all the ingredients are well combined.
  3. Place the fajita seasoned vegetables in a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast the veggies for about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and toss the shrimp in with the fajita vegetables until coated with the seasoning. Place the pan back in the oven and cook the shrimp for about 5-8 minutes until the shrimp turns from a gray color to a reddish orange color.
  5. Once the fajita vegetables and shrimp are ready, warm the tortillas either on a skillet or over an open flame of a gas stove on low heat. Add fajita vegetables and chipotle shrimp into the tortilla.
  6. Serve the chipotle shrimp fajita tacos warm with your favorite garnishes and sauces.
