Camarones En Salsa / Shrimp in Sauce

Camarones En Salsa / Shrimp in Sauce created by CrazyInMaine

I got this recipe from one of my friend's Mexican Cookbooks. Another friend tried it first and made a few changes with the amounts and extra spices. And I've added some of my own changes. The end result is wonderful. I usually have all these ingredients on hand. It's a quick recipe. I put the jasmine rice in my rice cooker and by the time the rice is done, so is the shrimp and sauce.
