Shrimp Diabla is considered a classic in the Mexican cuisine. This dish is typically served at parties and special occassions because shrimps are somewhat a luxury ingredient that is appropriate for a celebratory dish. And since Hispanic Heritage commemorations start this September 15th going through October 15th,  what a better way to celebrate by preparing this shrimp diabla, with ripen tomato sauce, spices and for that special kick of TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce. The chipotle sauce provides a nice smoky flavor and the perfect amount of heat to this shrimp diabla dish.

The TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce is also great to use in marinades for meats, like grilled skirt steak and even for spaghetti and meatballs. The whole range of TABASCO® sauces is so versatile and provides the right amount of heat needed to enhance my meals.

This would be such a comforting dish and my love Mexican cuisine definitely makes me wanna try this soon. With Tobasco sauce and spices, this will be a complete knock-off dish.
