A Tortilla stuffed full of Cajun Shrimp & Rice with green onions, tomatoes and seasonings. I can’t figure out if this tasted better hot or cold, it was great both ways! This would be a wonderful lunch or snack but we made it a meal.

  1. Very nice recipe and beautifully illustrated. I believe this would be great cold or hot, just as you suggested. That’s what makes this dish so versatile. It could be served cold, with salsa or warm, with a drizzle of hot white cheese. Thanks for sharing!

    • It has a lot of steps but was so easy to make. It is just adding the ingredients and stirring. The rice/shrimp mixture is ready in just minutes if you have cooked rice prepared ahead of time. Shrimp is one of the quickest and easiest things to cook. It cooks in just a few minutes. Thanks for your comment Linda. 💕

      • Try not to stress out Linda! Don’t worry about your blog we will all wait for you. Going tonight to see the live Broadway show Lion King with my daughter and granddaughter in Cleveland. So excited I have always wanted to see this.

      • Have a good time – you are likely there right now. I have never seen the Lion King movie and now there is a new one. A few weeks ago I was at the Metropark and saw a painted rock and it said “Hakuna matata” (there are no troubles in Swahili). My issue with falling behind was also because I was reluctant to continue to post, if I could not keep up with other’s posts – it did not seem fair to do that. I was caught up to one day out, but not been onto Reader yet.
