Shrimp Veracruz #MexicanRecipes

Shrimp Veracruz is such a refreshing and simple summer meal to pull together, but so BIG on flavor! You will have this meal pulled together in minutes, but be thinking about it long after you are done, because of how GOOD it was!

Our #MexicanRecipes Week is on a roll so far! Lots of bloggers have been sharing recipes all week long, and today is no exception! See the link below for more great recipe ideas!

I added black beans to my recipe, to boost up the protein for myself, just a bit, you will find some recipes with just the shrimp only. I simply love the addition of the beans and will always keep adding them to the dish.

I also insist on using yellow rice with this dish. Not only is the pop of color just spectacular, the flavor of the yellow rice is just a fantastic complement to the shrimp. They just go together!

Let's get cooking!
