Spicy Chipotle Shrimp

This, like the roast chicken, is so simple that you can hardly believe how delicious and complex the final dish is! We eat it on whole wheat cous cous. When I can find chayote, I serve that, steamed, with butter, on the side. This is fabulous dinner party food when you're rushed.

Stacy - I expect this could be a good base for vegetarian feasting once you've made the base sauce if you snub the shrimp.

1 15 oz can diced tomatoes (fire roasted is best!), drained
2-3 canned chipolte chilies in adobo sauce (3 is VERY spicy; be cautious with guests)
1 tbs adobo sauce from the chilies
2 tbs olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1-1 1/4 pound shrimp, peeled, deveined
fish or chicken broth, or water

Pour the drained tomatoes, chilies and adobo sauce into blender or small food processor. Process until very smooth. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in tomato sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes until flavors blend. Add enough broth or water to achieve a light tomato sauce consistently. Taste and season to taste with salt.

Add shrimp to pan and cook, stirring constantly, until shrimp are cooked through but still tender, about 4 minutes.

Top with chopped cilantro and serve promptly.
