Across the Border Tequila Shrimp
August 19, 2010

This Tequila Shrimp was very yummy!! I have been making it for about 6 months now and have made just a few changes. I melt the butter at the lowest heat setting then once melted I sift about 1/2tsp to 1tsp cornstarch to the butter and stir untill most of the cornstarch is blended with the butter (to make a rue). Another thing I have done is added 1/4 tsp Cheyenne pepper to the mixture along with the salt and chili pepper.those were the only changes I made to it and its GREAT!! My Hubby is a picky eater and he gave me the 2 thumbs up and even asks me to make it for dinner. I have also let my God son try it and he LOVES it and always asks for 2nd's (which is rare!!). I hope my comment helps anyone out there wanting to try it or who has already tried it but wanted to try something a little different.
