Savory, spicy, salty, sour, and with a hint of sweet from the honey, these Bloody Mary Chipotle Shrimp hits all the right notes! Tito’s brand of vodka, out of Austin, Texas, is one of my favorites when I prepare bloody mary’s. A bloody mary and this spicy shrimp make a great appetizer or light meal with some added rice or grilled vegetables. A quick cocktail sauce or warm tortillas with guacamole for some awesome shrimp tacos! The ultimate bloody mary garnished with a skewer of spicy shrimp? Now I am getting ahead of myself and can’t wait to prepare these again. However you decide to enjoy this delicious shrimp dish, it’s a must try for your next indoor or outdoor gathering. If you see this recipe with my pictures posted on another site that is not Hispanic Kitchen, then just so you know it was borrowed without asking, Lol! That’s putting it nicely.
