This is so delicious and easy! When I can't think of anything to make for diner, I make this because it's so good and easy! I always make spanish rice with it. The only problem is that sometimes it gets too spicy with the jalepanos, so be cautious when using them.

Veracruzana is a dish full of onions, jalapeños and tomatoes from the Mexican state of Veracruz. Here we pair the zesty sauce with shrimp, but it can be served with any type of fish or chicken. The heat of fresh jalapeños varies depending on growing conditions. Be sure to taste yours as you're adding them to the dish and adjust the amount according to your taste. For pepper flavor without the heat, use a thinly sliced green bell pepper in place of the jalapeños. Serve with: Rice or potatoes and an avocado salad.

I used black olives instead of green, skipped the lime, seasoned with Penzey's fajita seasoning, served with brown rice and black beans. Delicious!!! Am making it a Friday staple!

This dish is amazing. Low in calories, High in flavor. Anyone who is watching their intake and hates to miss out on the good stuff should try this dish. Its easy to make, and I am even looking forwarding to adding more fresh veggies to this dish.
This is one of my favorite recipes. I make it each year for Cinco de Mayo. I think the recipe is perfect as is but I do add corn and some Corona. I serve it on top of rice pilaf. So good!!
