I'm just joking. After working as a waitress in Southern California for a million years, I know how to say most every food in Spanish.
Another one of my "lazy dinners" is fajitas (pronounced fah-hee-tahs and not fa-Jie-tahs as one of my customers tried to order). Since its been busy this week, I'll let you in on a couple of my favorites.
I love love love shrimp fajitas. Most of the time I just grill some shrimp with a little salt and pepper and serve them with the quintessential guacamole.
This week I wanted to spice it up a bit, so I kept throwing stuff into the skillet until it became a hot spicy shrimp fiesta.
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 can diced tomatoes
1 Tbsp adobo sauce
1 lb large shrimp, peeled, deveined and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1) Heat vegetable oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook 1 minute.
2) Reduce heat to medium low, stir in tomatoes and adobo sauce. Simmer uncovered for 3 min.
3) Add shrimp and simmer until shrimp are cooked through, about 4 minutes.
4) Season with salt. Serve with guacamole and warmed corn tortillas.
