Super Simple Fiesta Shrimp

Before being scooped up and placed on top of rice

This is a handful recipe - I kind of measure everything by the handfuls, so that means that you don't have to worry about mis-measuring because this recipe is easy.

1 cup cooked rice (or more if you want)
2 handfuls of uncooked, peeled shrimp (I like jumbo)
1/4 cup of chopped white onion
handful of small tomatoes, or you can chop up big ones
option: green or red peppers (as much as you like)
chopped garlic (as much as you and your breath can stand)
2 tbsp. olive oil
3/4 cup or more of a fajita sauce

Cook rice.
Drizzle olive oil in pan on stove and heat on medium heat. 
Add onions and tomatoes and stir around. Let sizzle for a few minutes until the onions are soft and the tomatoes look like they are ready to burst. 
Sprinkle garlic on top, let cook for just a minute.
Add in shrimp, and cook until pink (about four minutes).
Add the fajita sauce, stir, and let heat for just a minute.
Remove pan from heat. 

Serve a scoop of the fiesta shrimp on top of a scoop of rice. You may even want to add some taco cheese on top! Mmmmmmmmmmm.
