Thea's notes for this recipe:
Today is Cinco de Mayo and this was our dinner. The recipe is from Taste of Home and I want to give full credit to the creator, Mandy Rivers, of Lexington SC. This is fabulous and I wouldn't change a thing. The marinade gives the shrimp heat and the wonderful cilantro cream sauce cools them down.

In a small saucepan, combine the first seven
ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Allow this to cool completely.
When cool, place the shrimp in a large resealable plastic bag and add the marinade. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
While the shrimp are marinating, combine the ingredients for the sauce. Chill until serving.
Thread the shrimp on metal or wooden skewers that have been soaked in water. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side or until shrimp are fully cooked. Serve with Cilantro Cream Sauce on the side. We wrapped some of the shrimp, topped with the sauce, in a warm flour tortilla. Delicious!

We just loved it and I think that it is going to be one of our meals when we camp with my daughter and a couple of her friends Memorial Day weekend.
