Sizzling shrimp fajitas are a favorite of my family's. I prefer flour tortillas, husband likes corn. Use whatever suits you.

This has become a total family favorite- we make it for special occasions now. We omit the green onions and red onion. We use your regular old fashioned white onion, about half of one. I typically use way more than 2 bell peppers- at least 5 or 6- so that the meal stretches out for a few more servings. Also, I don't just use green bells, I prefer to use yellow, orange, and red so that the dish has a lot of color to it. We also typically add in a couple sliced roma tomatoes.
