Macayo's Shrimp Fajita Pasta


  • 2 oz butter or margarine
  • 10 oz medium shrimp, peeled and de-veined (with tails cut off)
  • 1/2 oz garlic purée (the kind you buy in a jar)
  • 1/2 cup mixture of diced onions, bell peppers and green chiles
  • 2 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 2 oz diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 oz chipotle pepper purée
  • 1/4 oz steak spice (or fajita spice)
  • 1/2 oz dried basil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 12 oz cooked fettuccine
  • 1 oz grated cheese


Sauté the shrimp in the butter or margarine, for about a minute, or until ALMOST done. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan, except for the broth, fettuccine and the grated cheese.

Cook all the veggies and spices for about 1 minute and THEN add the chicken broth and allow to reduce for a few minutes. Next, add the cooked fettuccine.

Toss together well and serve with grated cheese on top. Garnish with garlic tortilla triangles (instead of garlic bread) and serve.
