Nice taste, like the non creamy sauces for lime shrimp better, but that's only my personal opinion. These were good though.

Delicious! Doubled the recipe--- used one Anaheim chili pepper and MarraMamba's lime crema. Finished with a sprinkling of freshly minced cilantro. Superb with a margarita! Thanks Mme Melissa!

Amazingly good flavor with so little effort. I made this as a main course so used 1lb of medium shrimp, 1 whole pepper, 3 tbs butter, 1/3 cup onions and a bit less than a cup of light sour cream. Whole family loved it and the lime slices made for a very nice presentation. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT3
