My family, friends and I absolutely LOVE this recipe. We usually make guacamole tostadas and top it with these shrimp, but I've served it over brown rice (increasing the sauce by 1/2) and as a tapas dish on a buffet. Delicious with a little Queso Fresca crumbled over the top.
Ground chipotle chile adds smoky, slightly sweet spiciness to the dish. Hot paprika makes a good substitute, or use sweet paprika for a milder heat.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 9 shrimp and about 1/2 cup rice)
