Chipotle Lime Shrimp over Spanish Rice!

This little number will tickle your taste buds!! You know how I love anything with a Mexican flare…well this is right up my alley!! Plump and juicy shrimp in a citrusy spicy sauce…How can you go wrong??

You can make this as spicy as you like just but regulating the amount of chipotle you use! This will certainly become a family favorite…Me and husband loved it!!

Of course we like it spicy! 🙂

Here is what I used:

  • 1 lb. peeled and deveined large raw shrimp
  • 1 TBSP minced garlic ( I used the jar kind)
  • 4 or 5 portabella mushrooms sliced
  • 4 or 5 green onions sliced
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 – 2 tsp. of Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce** (depending on your spicy preference…I used 2)**
  • 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2 cup of chicken broth
  • The juice of 1 lime
  • 2 TBSP chopped cilantro
  • Prepared Spanish Style Rice

**Helpful Hint** I take my chipotle peppers, sauce and all, and blend them up in the blender, that way it is a paste. I store it in the refrigerator in an air tight container like it’s a condiment. This makes it easy to measure for recipes.

Here is what I did:

Once all of my veggies were chopped and shrimp shelled, I heated the olive oil and garlic in a pan. Cooking until soft. Then I added the shrimp first. I  cooked them until just pink. I then added the onions and mushrooms and chicken broth, and cooked until tender.

Once they were all tender I added the chipotle and paprika until well blended. Then added the lime juice, sautĂ©ing for just a few more minutes…and finished with the fresh Cilantro.
