  • 20 Argentinian red shrimp
  • 8 small bell peppers cut into slices
  • 1 small onion cut into slices
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoon avocado oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Green Mountain Gringo® Mild or Medium Salsa
  • 1.5 cups rice cooked


  • Begin by seasoning the shrimp with salt & pepper and then marinating the shrimp in Green Mountain Gringo® Mild Salsa. Set the shrimp aside and cut the peppers and onions.
  • Add peppers and onions to a grill pan sprayed with coconut oil or avocado oil spray. Grill veggies over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • While the veggies cook, place the marinated shrimp on grilling skewers then grill for 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Assemble bowls with cooked rice, shrimp, veggies and top with Cojita cheese, avocado, Greek yogurt or sour cream and Green Mountain Gringo® Original Tortilla Strips.


  • Prep veggies by washing and cutting them beforehand. This will allow you to save time when making this meal on a weeknight.
  • Choose a base for your bowls, either microwave rice, cauliflower rice, or lettuce works well.
  • Toppings for your bowl can be avocado, Cojita or Mexican blend cheese, sour cream or Greek yogurt and/or cilantro. Feel free to swap ingredients to your preference.
  • If you don't have a grill you can also air fry the shrimp and roast the veggies. Air fry shrimp at 400F for 6 minutes and roast prepared veggies at 400F for 20-30 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • Nutrition information does not include toppings.
