5 jalapenos chile peppers, chopped fine (stems and seeds removed)

1 yellow onion, chopped fine

2 garlic cloves, chopped fine

3 small tomatoes (peeled and chopped)

3 tablespoons olive oil

3 dozen large shrimp (peeled and de-veined)

3/4 cup flour

4 tablespoons butter

2 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch (Mix with 2 teaspoons cold water)

2/3 cup tequila

Next add the tomatoes, basil and cilantro and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Next dredge the shrimp in flour and in another pan saute in butter until they are a golden brown. When this step is complete, add the cornstarch mixture to the vegetables and heat on medium until it begins to thicken. Immediately add the shrimp and tequila and set heat to low to medium for about 10 minutes.Even though this is a safe heat, watch carefully because you don't want it to boil. Youir dish is complete.

I'm sure this dish will be fine without the tequila and cilantro. The other ingredients are just fine. I can just eat the shrimp with a little salt and pepper and I'll be happy.

Hi Laringo-nice to meet you. I just read this recipe and bookmarked it for this w/e. Sounds good. One of the hubs I wrote for my 30 hub challenge is all about the chile peppers that are grown around the world and the measurement of the heat in them.
