    When cooked, combine the shrimp with the prepared sauce and stir well. Garnish with avocado slices and serve with a side of white rice.

Expert Tips

  • Don’t cook the shrimp for too long or they will become chewy.
  • It’s better to use fresh shrimp, but if they aren’t readily available you can use frozen shrimp also. Just follow the defrosting instructions on the package.
  • This is a spicy dish, but if you prefer a milder version, skip the chipotle peppers and only use jalapeños with the veins and seeds removed.
