      Don't underestimate the heat from the chipotles. Ouch! I love spicy food, but the goat cheese cream was a requirement to cool my tongue off. But overall, it had a nice lingering spiciness. I also found that the cream was too thick. Sue L may be right, that more buttermilk is needed, but I'm far from a chef, so I really don't know.

      No tequila, used a little rum and vermouth (so sue me) instead -- bet there was little difference. These are delicious but WAY too hot for me. The sauce (not thin enough to drizzle at all, needs less cheese and more buttermilk or something) helps, but I was still breathing fire. Highly recommend seeding the chipotle's! I will do that and make again for sure.

      This is a delicious and fairly easy dish to prepare with the shrimp achieving a nice state of smokiness covered in a refreshingly hot BBQ sauce. The goat cheese cream was on the thick side and could easily be thinned with additional buttermilk. I found that these shrimp tasted equally exceptional with or without the goat cheese cream, which softened the heat of the chipotles and gave a creaminess to the dish. Either way, this dish is a keeper, suitable for easy meals on the grill or entertaining guests. Thanks for the recipe!
