  4. PEPPERS & ONIONS: Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add onions and peppers. Sauté 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a small covered bowl, REFRIGERATE OVERNIGHT. (they will cook more when re-heated the next day).

  6. THE NEXT DAY: Remove meats from marinade (discarding marinade). On an oiled outdoor grill over medium hot coals, Grill chicken 6 minutes per side, and for the steak for 3 minutes per side for med-rare. For the shrimps, use either skewers or a (grill friendly) skillet. Shrimp will take about 5-6 minutes to cook. Wrap tortillas in foil and also heat on grill, turning after about 3 minutes.
  7. turn off the grill if gas, remove everything from the grill except tortillas until ready to serve. (If using wood or coals, move tortillas to a side of the grill away from coals). Transfer steak and chicken to cutting board, cover and let rest 5-10 minutes. Remove shrimp and cover with foil to keep warm. NOTE: Now is a good time to set up the table and also to re-heat the peppers and onions (you can use the microwave).

This is a 10 star recipe! It is very time consuming but well worth it. It has a great mixture of flavors. I cut it down to serve 2 and it made enough for 4. I made it on a short RV trip, so I prepared most of it in advance. I served it with sour cream, Easy Refried Refried Beans and mango salsa, which gave it a nice sweet bite. I also used large tortillas so only used one per person. I'm glad I tried this dish. Thanks for posting.
