Ingredients

  • 12 ounces chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, pureed
  • 1/4 cup minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 whole tomatoes, diced
  • One 16-ounce can lager beer
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • 3 sticks butter
  • 6 teaspoons minced fresh habanero peppers
  • One 1-pound box linguine, cooked
  • Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, recipe follows
Bacon Wrapped Shrimp:
  • 6 slices good-quality thick-cut bacon
  • 6 medium to large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

Directions

In a large food processor, blend the chipotles, garlic, Worcestershire, tomatoes, beer and cilantro.

Add the puree to a nonstick skillet and heat until the sauce bubbles.

Making 2 servings at a time, heat 1 stick butter with 2 teaspoons habanero in a large skillet. When the butter is melted, add one-third of the pasta and one-third of the Diablo sauce. Mix together for 20 seconds, remove from the heat and reserve. Repeat 2 more times.

Top with 1 bacon wrapped shrimp per serving.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the bacon on a baking sheet and bake until half cooked, 8 to 10 minutes. Let the bacon cool to room temperature. 

Wrap each shrimp with 1 slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Grill until the shrimp is fully cooked and the bacon is crispy, 2 to 3 minutes.
