Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups white mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup Mexican crema or creme fraeche
  • 1-2 tablespoons canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce 
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Shrimp broth (optional)* 

Directions

Using a food processor or blender, combine cream and chiles, adding chipotles a little at a time to taste, and pulse until smooth. Set aside.

Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute the green onion, garlic, and salt until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook covered, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat and cook, an additional 5 minutes. Add shrimp and simmer, covered until they begin to turn pink, about 2-3 minutes. Add broth if additional liquid is needed. Add the chipotle cream and heat until cooked through, an additional 3-5 minutes. Season to taste.

Serve with warm corn tortillas, over rice, or with avocado.

Cook's Note

To make broth, combine reserved shells with 2 cups of water and 1/2 teaspoon of salt and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer over medium heat for 30 minutes. Strain and use broth as needed to add liquid to the dish or thin the cream sauce to desired consistency.
