Dinner for One: Southwestern Style Shrimp & Rice

As a single, cooking dinner for one gives me the freedom to experiment a little. Sometimes it’s just sheer laziness. I want to cook healthy but make it quick. Tonight’s dinner was just that. Healthy, quick, and under 600 calories! My concoction resulted in a yummy Mexican dish. Easy!

Ingredients:
6 oz. of frozen shrimp
1 Can of Green Giant Southwestern Style Corn
3/4 Cup of Birds Eye Steamed Brown Rice
Fajita or taco seasoning (to taste)
Lime juice
Optional: diced jalapeño

Directions:

Thaw frozen shrimp in water
Thaw frozen brown rice in microwave.
Once thawed, add shrimp, rice, can of southwestern corn, spices & lime juice into the skillet.
Allow to simmer until juice/liquid is gone.

If you’re following Weight Watchers, this was a total of 12 PointsPlus. This was a lot of food. Big, satisfying dinner without the guilt. Yay!
