First, I have to confess that I’m allergic to shellfish. So I was not able to taste the shrimp myself. I always get envious of those who are fortunate to eat shrimp. So I replace that satisfaction by cooking it.  I have no idea of how shrimp taste; however, the look on my family’s faces when eating this shrimp says it all for me. I went even further when I decided to share this recipe with you. I asked them to describe the flavors for me (and You). If you are interested to know us a little more, visit my about me page 🙂 
These are just a couple of words my family uses to describe this Shrimp in a spicy chipotle Tomato Sauce Recipe: Delicious, flavorful, lightly spicy, and one or two included the word exquisite!

The sauce has a secret ingredient that gives a kick of flavor to the shrimp.

And the secret is  “chipotle pepper.” Just a tiny amount of this pepper goes a long way. My family devoured it all in minutes living behind no leftovers.

The first step is to defrost the shrimp by placing them in a large colander and rinse them under cool running water for about 1-2 minutes until the ice exterior is removed. Make sure to shake the colander to remove any excess water.

Then, place the shrimp in a large container and season with salt,  pepper to your taste. Then add the juice of one lime, and toss to combine. Set aside and let us prepare the sauce.

Using a blender, combine about 1 ½ crushed tomatoes, 1-2 garlic cloves, and the delicious secret ingredient, a small piece of chipotle pepper. Just remember, this goes a long way in flavor. Blend and set aside.
