Spicy Chipotle Shrimp Stir Fry

Back in July, I posted a Fire Day Friday recipe for chicken with orange chipotle glaze, and ever since, I have wanted to use that flavor combination again.  Enter my spicy chipotle shrimp stir fry.  It combines that heat of the chipotle and that tangy flavor of the orange juice to create the perfect sauce for this simple stir fry.

Spicy Chipotle Shrimp Stir Fry
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
Printable Recipe 
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 Tablespoon chipotle puree (to make puree, pour entire content of chipotle in adobo sauce can into a food processor and pulse until pureed)
3 Tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon sour cream
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
48 large frozen shrimp, thawed and tails removed
1 red pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
5-6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled

In a measuring cup or small bowl, add the barbecue sauce, chipotle puree, and orange juice; stir to combine.  Fold in the sour cream; set aside.

In a wok or large, deep skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium high heat.  Add the red pepper and jalapeno.  Stir fry until just starting to soften, about 3 minutes.  Add the shrimp and stir fry until the shrimp is heated through, about another 3 minutes.  Once the shrimp and veggies are cooked to your liking - add the sauce and stir to coat.  Allow to cook another 1-2 minutes, or until the sauce is heated.  Add the bacon and stir to combine.  Serve over rice.  Enjoy!

Chipotle and jalapeno?? These shrimp are on FIRE! And they sound good, orange and chipotle would be SO good together! The shrimp look perfectly cooked Jenn. My bowl of cheerios isn't nearly as tasty as these look!
