This Mexican Omelette is Delicious!

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.

Love this Shrimp Fajita Omelette Recipe? Try these shrimp recipes, too:

  • Shrimp Avocado Salad Recipe with Cajun Lime Dressing: This is a healthy shrimp salad recipe with loads of flavor.
  • Grilled Shrimp with Cheddar Grits: These Grilled Shrimp with Cheddar Grits are an easy grilling recipe for Southern food lovers.

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 homemade  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!
