Top Review by TasteTester

I couldn't wait to make this because I love shrimp, and this recipe didn't disappoint. We loved the tangy flavor the chili sauce gave, as well as the velvety sauce that the sour cream made. I also sauteed the shrimp briefly and set them aside in a separate bowl until just after the rice cooked. They warmed up nicely when put back in the pan at the end, and were sweet and tender. Will definitely make this again -- maybe even using a bit more chili sauce -- it added such a spicy flavor. Thanks, California Jan!
