  1. Combine mayonnaise, chipotle pepper, lime juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl. Puree until smooth with a stick blender. Alternately, you can use a food processor to puree the ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to assemble sandwiches.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Toss the shrimp in a bowl with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cook shrimp on the preheated grill until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 3 minutes on each side.
  5. To assemble sandwiches: Spread prepared mayonnaise dressing generously on 1 slice of bread. Arrange half of the shrimp and avocado slices on top. Place another slice of bread over the avocado, and spread another layer of the dressing. Top with a lettuce leaf and 2 slices of tomato followed by a third slice of bread. Repeat with the remaining ingredients for the second sandwich.

My grocery store didn't have any chipotles so I had to make do with that new Kraft Chipotle mayo. Sandwich was very good, it's a BLT with shrimp added. Super-messy to eat and keep together in sandwich form but everyone enjoyed it.

so many healthier options for substitutions for this. i'm opting for a chipotle guacamole with fat free sour cream instead of mayo, turkey bacon instead of regular bacon, and NOT making this a double decker! waist lines!

Everything you would ever want, smoky, spicy, creamy, tangy salty. Amazing

Yum! Don't be like me and not read the recipe carefully... I dumped the whole can of chipotle peppers into the mayo when it should have been only one individual pepper (I've never used this ingredient before)! My mouth was on fire, lol. I did scrape off most of it from the sandwich because of this unfortunately. The tiny bit I left on really gave that sandwich great flavour! I did not season the shrimp or use olive oil; just cleaned and peeled them then fried in the bacon grease. Also used regular, toasted bread to make the sandwiches. For a complete meal, add a salad.

Loved these sandwiches. Made them myself with two chipotles and Wasabi-Mayo to start with. SPICY! Danged good.

Wow -nice twist on a classic BLT! If you love grilled shrimp, love BLT's and have a taste for things with a bit of kick then this sandwich is for you. I had leftover grilled shrimp (Best BBQ Shrimp Ever from this site) so I thought I'd give this a try. This was so good - from the spicy mayo to the smoky bacon coupled with the grilled shimp to the creamy, cool avocado and the crisp fresh veggies. This definitely isn't your "run of the mill" BLT.

is there a piece of cheesecake to go with this??? Love this sandwich at the cheesecake factory.

This was awesome! I didnt make my sandwich triple decker, just a single. It was just perfect! I only changed 2 things. I did not have avocado in the house so I used the mayo on 1 slice of bread and plain cream cheese on the other. It didn´t have the cooling effect that creamy avocado has, but it was still tasty. I also added 2 chopped chipotle peppers in while the shrimp cooked in a skillet. My mouth was on fire after I devoured the sandwich but it was so good!
