Grilled Chipotle Shrimp

Grilled Chipotle Shrimp
These shrimp are so easy to make and so good that it is hard to resist grilling up a batch every week. They are marinated in a simple mixture of smoky and spicy chipotle chilies and sour lime juice along with a touch of garlic before quickly grilling it to perfection. The creamy sauce balances out the dish for a perfect weeknight grilling favorite.
