If you don't like this recipe you are a commie. Chipotle that i bought was a little spicy so my kids just had with plain shrimp but for adults it was perfect!

I actually just made the salsa and it turned out great. I was looking for a recipe for a green salsa with avocado and saw it with this shrimp recipe. The only thing is I would add the salt little by little so it doesn't get too salty, 1 1/4 tsp was too much.
