Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas With Avocado Crema

If you’re ever looking for the easiest dinner to serve a small group – I’ve got you covered. I find that Latin flavors, specifically Mexican, generally appeal to most people. And when you’re serving hungry kids or a group of friends, sometimes you need something fast and easy.

These flavorful fajitas need almost no active cook time and are elevated by a simple avocado crema.

Don’t get me wrong, I love guacamole any way. Sometimes extra chunky with just a dab of cilantro, lime and salt, and sometimes I like it hand mashed with all the flavors. Consider this an amazing technique to add to your repertoire.
