I love eating seafood andthere’s something light and airy about a wonderful cast iron shrimp recipe. This yummychipotle shrimp definitely fits the bill!This super tender and succulent shrimp, one of the most delicious cast iron skillet recipes, will drive the spicy fans crazy and even if you’re not a spicy fan, I think you might like this flavorful shrimp as well. It’s more smokey than spicy. It’s so quick and easy, and perfect, made into tacos, or even placed on top of chicken or steak for the final fancy dinner! I have to say this Skillet Chipotle Shrimp creates the absolutely best tacos. What you need is a little lime crema, some cilantro, and some slaw and you’re in business. Such a quick and easy dinner that anyone can make and everyone will love. Hope that everyone can enjoy it!
