Chipotle Shrimp

I think I’ve said on here before that my husband is the main cook of the family. I know, I totally nailed it on picking the right one! So he does the day to day cooking and I do what I like to call “party” cooking. Today I’m going to share with you a recipe that has secured a spot on our weekly menu and I get PUMPED about it because it’s THAT good. This recipe is a modified version of a Rick Bayless recipe, the rice is a not-so-secret-anymore-hubby recipe.

Chipotle Shrimp & Rice
1/4 cup butter
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup red wine
1 1/2 tbsp worcestershire
2 tbsp chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 lb shrimp

Melt butter. Saute garlic for 30 seconds. Add remainder of ingredients. Add shrimp and cook for 5 minutes. Fold rice in…see below for rice recipe.

Rice (seriously best.rice.ever. it’s a ricegasm)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1/2 chopped onion
1 tsp minced garlic (or that little jar of roasted garlic sooooo easy)
1 tsp salt
1 cup rice
2 cups chicken broth

Heat pan on medium heat and and add olive oil and butter. Add chopped onion, stir and let sit for a minute. Add minced garlic and heat until onion is soft. Add rice and stir to coat the rice. Heat until rice turns a slight
brownish color. Add salt and chicken broth. Increase heat to boil, turn heat down to low. Heat on low for 14 minutes, stir.


  1. I’m making this right now – I had to throw my own twist on the shrimp since I didn’t have some of the ingredients but the rice smells sooo good!

  2. @Lauren B Ohhhh definitely tell me what you think!
