It’s an under 20 minute meal and it’s loaded with shrimp (obviously) a variety of peppers including my favorite smoky poblano and then it’s wrapped up in an Old El Paso tortilla and you’re done. Serve it with some salsa of your choosing, perhaps some guacamole, and sprinkle on a little cheese if you’re feeling jazzy. The result is a perfectly seasoned meal that will make the whole family happy!!
