Full Answer

To make Mexican shrimp diablo, use a blender to puree one 7-ounce can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce until the mixture has a smooth consistency. Add one 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese and 1/2 cup of milk. Blend again until smooth.

Pour the pepper and cheese mixture into a saucepan, and bring it to a boil. Add 2 pounds of peeled and deveined shrimp, and cook the shrimp in the mixture for two minutes or until they are no longer opaque in the middle.

To prepare the Recipes-Mexican.com version of the dish, soak 2 dried New Mexico or guajillo chillies in warm water for 30 minutes, drain them, tear them into small pieces, and add them to a food processor with 2 seeded Jalapeno peppers, 3 large tomatoes, 1 cup of fresh cilantro and 5 peeled garlic cloves. Blend the ingredients until thick.

In a skillet, sauté 1 chopped onion until it is soft. Add 3 pounds peeled and deveined shrimp, and sauté until the shrimp turns pink. Add the tomato mixture, 1/2 cup of white wine, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer the mixture until it is bubbly and hot. Serve it over rice, and garnish it with slices of fresh lime if desired.
