Chicken and Shrimp Fajitas


Garlic powder



Cayenne Pepper

Chili powder

Spanish rice (I used Jambalaya Rice)



Orégano Powder

Greek seasoning (optional)

Old Bay seasoning

Seasoning Salt

Raw Shrimp

Chicken breasts

Pam Cooking Spray

Jalapeños (optional)


Red and green bell peppers

White onion


I usually start with the rice. I use Zatarain’s Spanish Rice but since the store was out I used Jambalaya rice. I fill a sauce pan halfway with water and I let that boil. Once it boils i add in the rice and let it cook. Rice can get stuck to the pan so stir it frequently.


Next I start on the chicken. I season the chicken with cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano powder, cayenne pepper,

Season salt and Greek seasoning. The best method would be to mix half a teaspoon of each in a bowl and then sprinkle it on the chicken. I don’t usually take measurements but half a teaspoon of each should be more than enough. Now you can use a non-stick skillet or cast iron skillet and spray it with the pan cooking spray. Once it gets hot place the seasoned chicken in and let it cook. Be sure to check on it periodically and turn the chicken breast over when done.


Now you can move on to the peppers. Most people cook them together but I cook mine separate then add them with the chicken. You can sprinkle a little of the seasoning you have left over on the peppers and onions. Get a smaller non-stick pan, spray it with the Pam cooking spray, and once heated add in the peppers and onions.


You can now move on to the shrimp but keep an eye on the others. You always want to cook the shrimp separate from the chicken for health reasons. I literally only combine them two when they are fully cooked and I’m getting ready to eat them. For the shrimp you can use the same little mix if you have any left. For this one I used the lime (although I kept referring to it as a lemon in the video smh). I also used the old bay seasoning, season salt, and garlic powder. You can use a separate pan for the shrimp or you the pan with the peppers. Either way you want to be sure you add the Pam cooking spray and that the skillet is hot. Shrimp typically doesn’t take very long to cook so keep a close eye on it.

Lastly, I like to warm up my tortillas and get them a little crispy around the edges so I stick them in the over for about 5-7 minutes.

Once everything is done you can grab a plate and enjoy 😉
