Baja Shrimp Fajitas are a cinch to throw together but your guests will never be able to tell since they're sizzling with flavor. These fantastic fajitas, based on a recipe from Heather Van Vorous, make the perfect party food since you can create an interactive dinner party and let the diners choose their own topping. The possibilities are limitless ranging from guacamole to salsa . The recipe is only for 1 serving but it can easily be multiplied to serve your exact number of guests.
