Chipotle Shrimp Tacos
One of my husband’s favorite restaurants is a chain restaurant called “Chipotle”. A chipotle is a smoked jalapeno pepper. A spicy little thing, and tasty too. So I keep finding myself drawn to recipes that have the word “chipotle” in their title, like this one: http://www.food.com/recipe/chipotle-shrimp-tacos-494425
I don’t like shrimp myself, but my husband does, and I so I prepare a shrimp dish for him every once in awhile. This is one of those that I think I’d like if I liked shrimp (make sense?) I didn’t spring for the large shrimp, but the medium ones always seem to work just fine in any recipe I’ve tried: The salsa verde I bought is a mild tomatillo salsa. I used it once before for another meal, and we liked it. I also know my husband doesn’t care for anything “too hot”, so I figured this was safer than buying that jalapeno salsa I saw 😉
Here’s a shot of the insides of hubby’s shrimp tacos: He found them a bit too spicy, so I suggested adding some sour cream on top. Since he didn’t need leftovers for lunch at work (had plans to go out with a group, I think), he went back and filled his plate again – ate every single bite! I’d say it was a hit, wouldn’t you?
