      This is the best dish ever. I found the recipe in a southwest cookbook back in 1989. It is always on the top of my list for dinner. It cooks quick (except for preparing the shrimp). I like to season it with Johnny's seasoning salt. I also double the tequila and lime juice. I like the extra liquid on the rice. Goes well with a margarita.

      Excellent easy to do shrimp dish. I used extra garlic, tequila and lime juice. I also put lime juice and zest into my rice for an extra kick. Thanks for the post Shirl (J) 831`

      Very good! I didn't taste the lime or tequila that much, so next time I'd take the suggestion of doubling both. But garlic and chili - you can't go wrong with that! Thanks for sharing.
