Recipe Notes

  • I used store-bought gluten-free spinach tortillas, but you can serve with any tortilla of your choice.
ON A SMALL TABLE/COUNTER TOP/COFFEE TABLE: Lay out skillet of Spicy Taco Shrimp Fajitas, serving silverware, and tortillas placed inside of a tortilla basket to keep them warm (or alternatively, a platter covered with a warm clean napkin and aluminum foil).
Also, lay out paper baskets to arrange tacos in, or dinner plates, napkins, wine glasses, and a bottle of chilled Sutter Home White Zinfandel. If desired, decorate table with a vase of colorful flowers or any decorative Tex-Mex item.  Eat and drink to the sound of a nice music soundtrack, and have a great time.
