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.

    I made this finally! Been eyeballing it for some time now! It was perfect, creamy and delicious! I did only use about 3/4 stick cream cheese cause thats what I had and it was plenty thick...i did have to thin a little with the extra chicken stock. I did have to sub a couple of things cause I couldn't find them. For the Mexican Creama I just used heavy cream and for the ground chile de arbol pepper I just subbed out for some cayenne. Im not sure how spicy the chile de arbol is but 2 tsp of cayenne seemed a lot so I cut to 1 tsp. and it still had quite a kick! I forgot to get some cojita cheese to top with so I just did a little parmesan on top. Thanks so much...this was yummy!!!

    Made this was quick, easy, and rich! :) And tasty, of could it not be? I did just do the veggies as directed and started the sauce at the same time...added the shrimp to the veggies to cook as I added the seasonings and creama to the sauce... then combined them. :) Perfect timing and easy peasy. I also had 4oz cans of chiles, so I used one of those and a 4oz can of sliced jalapenos, too. Served it over Mexican rice, because those I was serving love didn't NEED it, white rice would have been great, that was just what they asked for. Thanks for a great, filling recipe, Sharebear!

    Brianna ~ Mexican Crema can be substituted for sour cream if you cannot find it.

    Sounds delicious. I just have to find out what Mexican Creama is as I may have to substitute here in Canada.
