I've been wanting to make shrimp, and we had some chipotle peppers around, so might as well try it. It also has EIGHT cloves of garlic in it, and a half cup of Coca Cola. Interesting. The sauce smells so good. It's got a bit of a kick to it...pretty spicy, actually, but sweet too.
My dad made the green bean recipe that I picked out. The leeks are sauteed and crispy, and the green beans are just a little crunchy. Don't let them get too squishy.
These recipes go really well together...plus, they're very festive red and green. ;)
