Chipotle Shrimp Chilaquiles

**Sponsored by Philly Seafood


Chipotle Shrimp Chilaquiles where have you been all of my brunch life?! The smokiness of the chipotle and all of the garnishes serve as a strong and earthy base for the sweet and clean taste of Philly Premium Wild Texas Shrimp.


The Garcia and Aparicio Families, who own Philly Seafood are no strangers to shrimping. Their grandfather started the family in the business in 1952 and to this day every pound of shrimp sold has passed through the attentive eye of a family member before it reaches your home. The name Philly in their company has no relation to the city in Pennsylvania but rather to a young family member who passed away several years ago, they wanted to ensure that he would remain a part of the family legacy. With a company name that holds such gravitas, it is no surprise that the company is dedicated to the highest standards in shrimping practices and uses no antibiotics or hormones.


I've been buying their shrimp for a few years now, and the taste is truly distinguishable, you can purchase at HEB, Sprouts, Albertons, Brookshire Brothers, Randalls, Sam's Club and many more grocery retailers around Texas. You can learn more about their company at www.phillyseafood.com
