Chipotle Lobster Tails…..this appetizer is just downright delectable and appetizing and succulent and savory and more! This is just one I wish I could make at least once or twice a week.

And to talk about downright quick and easy! These simple ingredients come together for a mouthwatering experience. Chipotle lobster tails are just a delicious crime that I just don’t run from committing. Ever! And if you’re anything like me that absolutely finds any reason to make a sinfully ambrosial seafood appetizer, well you won’t quite mind either.

But here the simple ingredients of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, caramelized onions, chicken broth and fresh garlic come together to form a fantastic mojo.
Lets get started here and you will see for yourselves why this is one of my favorites.
