  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until golden brown, 10-15 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper and sauté one more minute. Remove from heat and pour into a food processor. Add in the chipotle chiles, vinegar and water and pureé. Pour 1/2 of the pureé in a non-corrosive bowl and allow to cool slightly. Add the uncooked shrimp and allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. For the glaze, pour the other half of the pureé into a saucepan. Add the brown sugar, orange juice and adobo sauce. Bring this to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until slightly thickened, 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside. Preheat a broiler or grill. Remove the shrimp from the marinade and thread them onto skewers or lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush with thickened glaze and place on the grill or under the broiler. Cook until the shrimp turn pink, 2-3 minutes, while frequently brushing with glaze. Remove from heat. Mix the sour cream with the rest of the glaze and use as a condiment for the fajitas. Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds. Top them with cheese, shrimp and desired condiments. Serve warm.
