I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Creamy Chipotle Tequila Shrimp
...in your mind.

Creamy Chipotle Tequila Shrimp

So good, creamy & wonderful. Positively dreamy.


  • 1 tablespoon each butter & olive oil
  • 1 pound, raw peeled & deveined shrimp
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup tequila, silver would be most appropriate here
  • 1/3 cup Mexican crema
  • 1-2 chipotle chiles, minced
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped cilantro


  1. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add butter, oil & shrimp
  2. Season with salt & pepper and cook until about 1/2 way done
  3. Pull pan off heat and add tequila - slowly slide back as it will likely flame (you want this)
  4. Let the flame burn down - it will only take a few seconds and put in garlic
  5. Stir well about 30 seconds and add crema and chipotle - stir well to combine
  6. Let thicken, add cilantro.
  7. Serve this on rice, pasta or by itself.
