1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander

1 tsp ground black pepper
1 red bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced
1 green bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced
1 onion- thinly sliced
1 tbl crushed garlic
lime wedges
flour or wheat tortillas
optional, sour cream, pico de gallo, lettuce, tomatoes, etc
