Favorite Ingredients Friday (Mexican Food Edition)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for my Favorite Ingredients Friday Mexican Food Edition recipe exchange.

We were given this recipe by some friends we made during one of our vacations to Mexico. These shrimp are very tasty! I hope you enjoy them!

Tequila Shrimp

1/4 cup butter
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
4 tablespoons tequila
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 lime, cut into wedges

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic; cook and stir for about 30 seconds. Add shrimp; cook until they start to turn pink, about 3 minutes. Pour in the tequila and lime juice and season with salt and chili powder. Simmer until the liquid has evaporated, about 3 more minutes. Pour shrimps on a plate and garnish with cilantro. Garnish with lime wedges. Serve with rice or in a tortilla wrap!

I hope if you try this recipe you'll let me know how it turned out for you! Now I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Mexican Food Dishes recipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

AH! Perfect for Holy Week in Guatemala or Cinco de Mayo!

This week we are making traditional Russian Easter Eggs with AJ instead of the dyed ones to that when he decides to peel them he can actually eat them. :)
