First, make the creamy chipotle sauce by adding the mayo, sour cream, chipotle peppers, lime juice, garlic, and a pinch of salt in a food processor. Process until it8217;s nicely smooth and creamy.
Then, cook the shrimp in a pan with olive oil and remove to a bowl when it8217;s cooked. In that same pan, add more olive oil and add the bell pepper and saute for 4-5 minutes. Pour in the chipotle sauce and milk and stir to combine.
