Tortilla Land Shrimp Fajitas

by jerseygirl on July 7, 2011 · 15 comments

Last week I received a package from Tortilla Land. It came at 9am in the morning. By 9:15, my kids were eating the best cheese quesadillas they ever had! I was sent a box of three large packages of tortillas along with some recipes that can also be found on their website by clicking HERE.

I was sent enough to have some extra to share. But did I? No. This time I was a very bad neighbor. My family would not let me part with a single tortilla. Tortilla Land’s motto is “So fresh, they haven’t been made yet”. This is the truth. These are uncooked tortillas that only take a minute to cook up. I did mine in a cast iron skillet and watched the flaky tortillas puff up perfectly. We kept making more and more until there were none left. These are perfect for a holiday barbecue as you can also cook them right on your grill. They need to be cooked 30 seconds on each side and this is what they look like.

Since seafood and tortillas are a favorite of mine, I made some shrimp fajitas for dinner the other night. The kids have been eating cheese quesadillas for lunch every day and we needed a change.
I marinated up some shrimp, popped them on the grill for a few minutes and served them with fresh Tortilla Land tortillas, guacamole, salsa, tomatoes, sour cream and cheddar cheese. What could be easier and fresher than that? I’m telling you, BUY some of these tortillas and you won’t be disappointed! ****

*****For full disclosure, I was provided with free tortillas. The opinions are my own and I was not compensated to write this post.
