Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Cups and Filling
Crisp your phyllo cups on a parchment-lined baking sheet in the oven for 5 min. before setting aside to cool completely.
When the cups are cool, whip the cream cheese, sour cream, green onions, salt and pepper together. Transfer this mixture to a ziptop bag with one bottom corner cut off, then use to fill each phyllo cup.
Process the chipotle peppers and sauce in a food processor until smooth. Place the chipotle purée, shrimp and garlic together in a ziptop bag and gently work the bag around until the shrimp are evenly coated. Place the shrimp in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to marinate.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until it shimmers. Add the shrimp and sauce to the pan, then sprinkle with the salt and lime juice. Cook for around 4 minutes, tossing the shrimp as needed, until the shrimp are cooked through. Remove from the heat and gently mix in the butter.
Top filled cups with shrimp and cilantro. Serve warm.
