Deviled shrimp (camarones a la diabla) take their name from the hot sauce what they are made with. You can make l;a Diabla sauce either with chiles or chipotle. We’re using chipotle for this recipe.
For Latinos, any celebration is good to spend with family or friends, whether it’s during Lent, to watch a soccer game or at a party. There is never a shortage of Latin dishes to enjoy.
In my case, most of the times we get together, each family brings a dish to share. I love those “suit” meetings attended by people from different Latin countries. We can learn and enjoy new and typical recipes from our countries.
Mexicans prefer spicy recipes with a lot of flavor, that’s why I thought of making some shrimp a la diabla with Clamato ® and I wasn’t wrong; The recipe turned out very tasty and is ideal for Lent when we look for seafood recipes or recipes without meat. Get inspired to prepare this and other recipes by visiting the Forty Days of Flavor site, you will love them!
The Clamato® Tomato Cocktail gives it a fresh and delicious touch, I have used it before to prepare seafood recipes and they are always very tasty. The shrimp a la diabla can be as spicy as you prefer, you choose the amount of chipotle pepper that you add to the sauce, remember that not all Latinos eat spicily.
I found all the ingredients at Walmart. The Clamato® Tomato Cocktail is in the juice section. This recipe is perfect for your meetings, adjust the measurements according to your needs, I hope you enjoy it!
