  1. Outstanding!
  2. This was a great recipe. A wonderful blend of sweet and spice! Only the chipotle cream had any kick to it so it was perfect to share with my 5yr old. We both loved the flavor in the shrimp (he just had a little regular sour cream), and I loved the subtle chipotle flavor roo.
  3. Tacos is such a different kind of recipe that you can eat it anytime! You can eat tacos in the morning, snack, and even at night! And this recipe is really amazing! I will try this, surely my hubby will love this!
  4. I had about 3/4 lb of colossal shrimp that I had already cooked last night that had no seasoning on them. So, I looked up a good recipe on Recipezaar for Mexican seasoning, halved it, and sauteed my shrimp in that with some butter. For the chipolte cream sauce, I found that 1 teaspoon of adobo sauce was not enough. I ended up using about 4 teaspoons of the adobo sauce, about 3 teaspoons of honey and 1/2 cup of sour cream. I also added about 1 teaspoon of fresh lime juice to this cream sauce. I filled my tortillas with the shrimp seasoned with the mexican seasoning, then shredded cabbage, then the chipolte cream sauce that I had "livened" up. LOVED IT!!!

I have been married for 20 years to my wonderful husband, Phil. We live in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern CA. I love cooking, eating a variety of foods and drinking wine (in moderation , of course)! There's nothing better than a wonderful meal! In Northern CA there is an abundance of fresh ingredients year round as well as wonderful wines! We have been fortunate enough to travel and experience wonderful cuisine, but I miss all the ethnic foods I grew up with. I love to cook and try new recipes. Being the daughter of 2 caterers, food has always been a big part of my families' life. Some of the best memories I have are of family gatherings around the kitchen table or counter. The kitchen was and truly is the "heart of the home"! Back East we enjoy food for passings, celebrations, comfort or everyday life. Menus are varied according to the holidays at hand. Portuguese for Labor Day, Italian for St. Joseph's Day, Irish for St. Patrick's Day, Polish for Easter and the list goes on. Tradition has deep roots in the East and "Food: "is" The Way To Everyone's Heart"! <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u187/starryrose1956/hot_wieners.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> "R.I.
