Hungry Girl how I love you and tequila and shrimp!

For dinner tonight DH and I made this yummy dish from Hungry-Girl :

Te Quiero Tequila Shrimp

8 oz. raw shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails removed2 Roma tomatoes, chopped1 small onion, sliced3 tbsp. (1 1/2 oz. or 1 shot) tequila2 tbsp. lime juice2 tbsp. coarsely chopped fresh cilantro1 tsp. minced garlic1/4 tsp. chili powder1/4 tsp. salt

Directions:Bring a large pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook until onion is slightly translucent, about 3 minutes. Carefully add tequila to the pan and stir. (It's unlikely it will flare up, but be cautious, just in case.) Cover the pan and let simmer for 5 minutes.
Add shrimp and cook for about 3 minutes, until shrimp are nearly opaque. Add tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro, chili powder, and salt, and mix well. Stirring occasionally, cook until tomatoes have softened and shrimp are cooked through, about 2 minutes. Enjoy!


HG Alternative! The cilantro works reeeeally well here (believe it!), but if that herb's a non-negotiable for you, just skip it or swap it out for chopped scallions.
