  • medium non-stick skillet


  • ¼ cup salsa
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup red bell peppers stem and seeds remove and cut into slices
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 oz cooked shrimp
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning homemade or store bought
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas or whole wheat tortillas
  • ½ cup reduced fat shredded Mexican or Taco cheese blend


  • In a medium nonstick skillet, heat the oil to medium heat and add your red bell peppers. Cook until softened; about 5 minutes. Then, add shrimp, garlic, and Mexican or Taco seasoning. Cook and stir for 4 to 6 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat and add lime juice.
  • Place tortillas on a microwavable safe plate and microwave for 30 seconds before assembling. This helps the tortillas to stick more easily.
  • To serve, fill each tortilla with the shrimp mix and top with salsa, plain Greek yogurt, and cheese.


How can my kids help?  Have them dump in all the ingredients with supervision of course :)
If you decide to make your shrimp ahead of time after you cook your shrimp refrigerate it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. When you're ready to eat you can heat it up on the stove in a medium non-stick skillet with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Cook until heated through.
