  • 3 tablespoons neutral-flavored oil, such as avocado or grapeseed

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon lime zest

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon chipotle chile powder

  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced

  • 1 pound large shrimp (24-30 count), peeled and deveined, halved lengthwise

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 8 corn tortillas, warmed

  • Lime wedges, chopped fresh cilantro, sour cream, avocado and/or pico de gallo for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Combine oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, lime zest, salt and chipotle powder in a large bowl. Transfer 4 teaspoons of the mixture to a small bowl and set aside. Add red and yellow bell peppers and onion to the large bowl; stir to combine. Spread the vegetables on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast on the middle rack, stirring once, until mostly soft, 13 to 15 minutes. (Reserve the large bowl for the next step.)

  3. Meanwhile, add shrimp and the reserved chili mixture to the large bowl and toss to combine. Once the vegetables have softened, remove from the oven and stir in the shrimp. Continue roasting until the vegetables and shrimp are cooked through, about 5 minutes more. Transfer to a serving dish and stir in lime juice. Serve with warmed tortillas and with lime wedges, cilantro sour cream, avocado and/or pico de gallo, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
