B.C. (Before Children) this day meant big azz margaritas for all at Mad Mex!! Maybe a few tequila shots, too! A.D. (After Developing No Alcohol Tolerance) We still love to go out for this holiday, but on a Monday? Skinnygirl Margarita on the rocks at home for me, thank you.
If you are staying in too, because it is a Monday, I have a quick and easy Cinco de Mayo dinner for you!
Lately, I have been experimenting with spices. My perfect storm right now is cinnamon, with cayenne pepper and cumin.
Orange Pepper Grilled Shrimp Skewers
2 1/2 cups raw shrimp, thawed and peeled.
1 cup onion cubes
2 cups bell pepper cubes
2 cups orange slices
1 lime sliced or lime juice
1/4 cup chili powder
2 tbsp. cumin
1 tbsp. garlic salt
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. cayenne pepper
Heat your grill to medium heat.
Add peppers, onions, shrimp and oranges to the skewers in any pattern.
Sprinkle both sides with seasoning.
Add skewers to the grill.
Grill 5-8 minutes then flip.
Cook until shrimp are no longer transparent.
Serve with a squeeze of lime juice! Great idea, Angela!!
I grilled corn on the cob and steamed brown rice. This is so easy and delicious!
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Enjoy!
