Now that we have Thanksgiving behind us we can give the turkey a break. I don't even know anyone who actually likes turkey. Thanksgiving is just a time for senseless murdering of the turkeys. There, I said it. Save the turkeys! You know what I don't care about saving? Shrimp. Shrimp are tasty little devils and this recipe from Angelina is so so good and so so healthy and SIMPLE to make!
1lb large shrimp, cleaned and tails removed
1Tbsp coconut oil
½ red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
½ yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 avocado for guacamole
Juice from half a lime
½ medium onion, diced
¼ cup chopped cilantro
1 can refried black beans, warmed
1 cup 2%milk Mexican cheese blend
6 whole wheat sandwich thins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Split sandwich thins in half and place on baking sheet. Place in hot oven for 1-2 minutes to slightly crisp the bread.
Heat oil over medium heat in large sautee pan. Sautee peppers and onion until soft, about 10 minutes. While veggies are cooking, make guacamole by mashing the avocado and seasoning with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and juice from half a lime.
Divide the refried beans and spread on the sandwich thins. Top with the cheese. Place the Thins, topped with beans and cheese, in the oven. Cook until cheese is melted. Meanwhile, add the shrimp to the pan with the vegetables. Cook the shrimp until pink, 4-5 minutes. Stir in the cilantro
Remove the Thins from the oven, add the guacamole on top of the cheese, then top with shrimp and veggie mixture. Enjoy!
