Chipotle Lime Dip and BBQ'd Tiger Shrimp

On it's own this is an awesome Dip with unlimited possibilities - and it's ready in just minutes. The grilled shrimp is great, as is grilled chicken. I have substituted the new Tabasco Chipotle Flavour hot sauce and it's a great flavour. Originally from Food and Drink.

I am a real stickler for cocktail sauce for my shrimp but I just loved this dip. I made as posted using minced chipotle. I also used large shrimp instead of the tiger shrimp. This was very easy to make and I made it for lunch for my DH and I. Thanks for posting!

I wasn't sure about this dip at first because I test tasted it straight away after making it and it was very very lime flavored. I let the dip rest for 5 hours and it was absolutly wonderful with the shrimp. I loved it! Thanks so much!

Loved the fresh and lightly spicy flavors in this dip. We used it with shrimp as the recipe suggested and enjoyed the blend of summery flavors. The next night, I added some southwestern seasoning to the leftover dip, and tossed it with a can of drained black beans, chopped red and green bell pepper, chopped avacado, and a can of drained corn for a southwestern salad topper. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe.
