Food Facts

The chipotle pepper is actually a jalapeño pepper that has been dried and smoked. Chipotles can be found dried, pickled and canned in adobo sauce. For all-family appeal, try adding small amounts of the chopped chipotle peppers to the Alfredo sauce since chipotle peppers can be rather spicy.

Note

For a stronger or milder flavor, use more or less chipotle peppers to taste.

How to Purchase and Store Raw Shrimp

Fresh shrimp should be firm, moist and translucent and should smell like the sea. Avoid those with black spots and any trace of ammonia odor. They can vary in color from grayish-green to pinkish-tan to light pink. Place in a bowl (if wrapped in plastic, punch a few holes in the plastic) and store in the coldest part of the refrigerator up to 1 day.

Shrimp Sizes

The size of a shrimp is indicated by the count or number of shrimp per pound. The smaller the number, the larger the shrimp. Shrimp size terminology varies from place to place, so the count is the most accurate way to call for shrimp in a recipe. A basic guideline is: 11 to 15 is jumbo; 16 to 20 is extra large; 21 to 30 is large; 31 to 35 is medium and 36 to 45 is small.
