"I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversation."
-George Bernard Shaw
This is a great kid-friendly meal. It's a bit spicy, but not too much so, and you can substitute boneless chicken thighs (cut into bite-size pieces) or strips of flank steak for the shrimp.
Think of this as a Mexican stir fry. The idea is to cook each ingredient quickly so that the dish has a bright, fresh, crisp flavor like an Asian stir fry. You can add some fresh cilantro instead of the oregano at the end and it'll really finish off the dish.
