My life is all about the easy meals lately. Actually with four kids I think it has always been about the easy meals! ? But I love how you can make an amazing dinner that doesn’t require a lot of work and effort and is packed with so much flavor. Fajitas are such a classic meal that are easy to make. You just can’t beat dinner on the table in just 20 minutes!

I used my favorite spice blend for fajitas on the shrimp. It adds so much flavor and blackens the shrimp as it cooks. I also love that this all cooks in one skillet making clean up such a breeze!
