Chipotle Shrimp Pasta

If you have been following me on social media then you know that I am a seafood lover. Shrimp, in particular is my favorite seafood. It is versatile and doesn’t require much work. It cooks quickly , and there are endless options when it comes to the preparation of it. This recipe combines my favorite seafood in a creamy chipotle sauce . Chipotle peppers are really just jalapeño peppers that have been fully ripened , dried , then smoked . Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce are what we will use to make this recipe.

  1. I recently came across your website through Pinterest. And now I am obsessed. I followed you on IG the same day and I just purchased the cookbooks! Anyway!…I made this recipe tonight and it was a hit. My fiancé devoured this meal. I made it a bit more spicy and added spinach. Delicious !

  2. I am wondering the spice level on this meal? I want to make it for my family but I am skeptical if the kids will think it’s spicy and not eat it.

  3. I made this recipe for dinner tonight and whewwwww chile! The flavor! The sauce is *chef’s kiss*.

  4. How many serving per recipe I might have missed it. Cooking for a family of 4, 2teen 2adults.
