I had the most amazing meal at "El Farol" in Santa Fe. These were the highlight. Thank you Chef James Campbell Caruso! The shimp are sweet and hothothot (The Margaritas were good too).

Really good! All of the strong flavors blend beautifully into a nice spicy dish. I will definitely make this again - next time I'll make a bigger batch. I may try it with chicken some time as well. I served it over rice. Thanks for sharing!
