Southwestern Shrimp Skewers

Southwestern Shrimp Skewers

I love shrimp!  It is hard to find ways to cook it that everyone will enjoy! We try not to fry things too often around here, so filling up a shrimp skewer with delicious seasoning and a few veggies is perfect!  This is easy to make and so delicious and fun for kids to make too!
