Camaron Enchilado

1 tablespoon olive oil 
1 cup chopped onion 
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper 
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper 
1/2  to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
4  garlic cloves, minced 
1  (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained 
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined 
1/4 cup light coconut milk 
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

This is a pretty simple traditional Cuban dish that you can serve to the whole family. It's not difficult or expensive, and it's super delicious! Now the steps are easy, first you heat oil in a large skillet on medium or high heat, then you add the onions and  sauté them for 2 minutes. Once that's done, add bell peppers, crushed red pepper, salt, and garlic, once that's done, sauté it for 4 minutes. Now you're gonna add even more flavor and throw in the tomatoes & allow them to cook for 6 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates, but continue to stir it frequently.
Now that you made the sauce, now it's time for the shrimp! Put the sauce into the shrimp, and cook it for 4 minutes or until shrimp are done, again, make sure you're stirring frequently! Once all that is done, remove the shrimp mixture from heat, and stir it in coconut milk for extra flavor, my grandma showed me that trick! And then when all that is done top it off with some spice, and sprinkle it with some cilantro. 
Now you're all done and ready to enjoy your Cuban meal!
