Shrimp Fajita Omelette Recipe #15MinuteSuppers

Last Updated on

I love Mexican food and am particularly partial to meats, veggies, cheese, etc all wrapped up in a tasty flour tortilla. Since I am trying to eat gluten free, tortillas are a huge no no. The other day I was drooling over an omelette recipe and realized that the egg part of it looked remarkably like my beloved flour tortilla. Since I had shrimp and a few other fajita ingredients I decided to see if I could create an omelette recipe that would remind me of a shrimp fajita. I was pleasantly surprised with the results! Served with a side of salsa, sour cream or guacamole and this shrimp fajita omelette recipe sort of helped cure my craving for Mexican food this week. Now, if I could just figure out how to make gluten free churos I’d be all set!
