In medium or large Ziploc® Brand Zip 'n Steam™ bag, combine:
Seal bag and shake gently to combine ingredients. Stir ingredients with a spoon if necessary to ensure shrimp and peppers are evenly distributed.
Place bag in microwave. Cook on full power for 5 to 5 1/2 minutes or until all shrimp are fully cooked and opaque throughout. If needed, continue microwaving at 30-second intervals until shrimp are done.
Allow bag to stand 1 minute before handling. Carefully open bag. Pour shrimp and peppers from bag.
Place ~ 1/2 cup shrimp and pepper mixture into a small corn tortilla.
Garnish with salsa, fresh cilantro, and low-fat sour cream or plain nonfat yogurt, and lime juice.
Roll and eat.
Note: If you don't tolerate the tough skin on peppers, try using roasted bell peppers in this recipes. This skin has been removed and thus they are much softer and may be better tolerated. If you don't want to do the roasting yourself, look for jarred roasted red bell peppers in your local grocery store.
