Recipe of the Week

Cajun Shrimp Pitas

1.5 lbs of Cajun shrimp
1 cup of brown rice
beans (any kind will do; I used kidney beans a.k.a. red ones)
1 jalapeño seeded and diced
diced green peppers
diced mushrooms

cayenne pepper
chili powder

Cook rice according to package (Uncle Ben's Instant whole grain brown rice is awesome). DO NOT REMOVE THE COVER UNTIL THE TIME IS UP. No need to check on it.

Heat corn and beans on the stove top, separately, until warm. Remove from heat, toss in some chili powder and cayenne pepper.

Heat skillet on medium, toss in shrimp, jalapeños, green peppers, mushrooms, onions. Cook until thoroughly heated and veggies are to desired tenderness. Add a little cayenne pepper.

Keep shrimp et al warm until the rice is done. Once finished, open up a pita, add some rice, beans & corn, then top with shrimp mixture. Add some salsa. YUM!
