Find some big, jumbo shrimp at the supermarket and fresh bell peppers and onions. While the shrimp is soaking up all that delicious south-of-the-border flavor, cut up your peppers and onions and start tossing them on the grill. (You can make the sauce in your personal blender ahead of time to save a few minutes of work on Cinco de Mayo.)

We recommend grilling the taco shells, too, as it really brings out the toasted corn flavor. Skewer the shrimp and cook them on a really hot grill for a couple minutes until they are just done. Be careful not to overcook them.
