Rosie got this recipe from her grandmother from Estipac a small town near Guadalajara Mex. My absolute favorite shrimp recipe hands down.We save the oil for later use having a nice fragerant spicy garlic aroma that works great for cooking tostadas or chips for nachos. Also this is fairly spicy with the 8 chiles you can tone it down by using less.
