How to make it
- Melt butter in skillet. Place peppers, garlic and onion into butter and saute until tender. About 5-7 minutes or until onion is translucent. Remove peppers, onion and garlic and set aside. Save pan and juices, keep warm.
- In seperate pan add broth and green chilies and bring to simmer. Turn off heat and add cream cheese stirring slowly until incorporated. Add mexican creama and spices. Stir again. Add peppers, onion and garlic, stir to incorporate. If to thick add chicken broth until you reach desired consistency, if to thin add more cream cheese or mexican crema. Remove from heat.
- In other pan with juice place shrimp 1-2 minutes on each side until done. Set shrimp aside. Add shrimp to cream mixture.
- Serve over a bed of rice. Top with cilantro and cojita cheese.
- Best served with rice, about 3-4 cups cooked. I like to sprinkle mine with cojita cheese and cilantro also.
