Chipotle Shrimp Guacamole

Sautéed spicy shrimp and homemade guacamole are both scrumptious by themselves. So when they’re combined into one dish, you know it’s going to taste really really good. Treat yourself to this wonderful shrimp and guacamole, you’ll be so glad you did.

This amped up homemade guacamole makes a wonderful appetizer or even a light meal.

Have you ever been in a restaurant and ordered an appetizer for lunch or dinner?

Not only is it super great having an appetizer all to myself, but sometimes it’s just what I’m craving and tastes so good.

One of the best appetizers I had for dinner at a restaurant was a plate with 3 types of hummus on it.

I don’t even remember the type of bread that came with it because the hummus was so delicious.

This Chipotle shrimp guacamole reminds me of the type of appetizer that could make a wonderful light meal too.

I’m making myself hungry just talking about it so I better move on to the ingredients.

But first, thank you so much for stopping by CCC!

So let’s check out the ingredients.

For the Chipotle Shrimp – large raw shrimp, Chipotle chili powder, granulated garlic, ground cumin, salt, pepper and olive oil.

For the Guacamole – avocados, fresh lime juice, cilantro, red onion, jalapeno pepper, Roma tomato, salt and pepper.

Here’s how to make it.

For the Chipotle Shrimp:

In a small bowl, add Chipotle powder, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper.

Whisk or mix together with a fork.  I’m so glad when I have ingredients small enough to use my super small whisk.

I’m more glad when I remember that I even have it.

In the bowl, add the washed, peeled (tails-off), and deveined shrimp.

With tongs, toss the shrimp until all sides of the shrimp are coated with the spice mixture.  Set aside for a moment.

Heat a medium size skillet on low to medium heat and add olive oil.

In the pan, add the shrimp.

When the bottom side of the shrimp turn white (about 2 minutes), turn them over and cook the other side for about the same amount of time or until the shrimp are completely cooked.

Transfer the shrimp from the pan on to a plate and set aside to cool while making the guacamole.

For the Guacamole:

In a medium size bowl, add mashed avocados, lime juice, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, tomatoes, salt and pepper.

Next,

stir together and side aside for a moment.

Cut the shrimp (all but one; save for garnish) into small chunks.

Add about 3/4’s of the cut shrimp to the guacamole (reserve some for garnish)…

…and stir together.

Transfer the guacamole to a serving bowl and garnish with pieces of the cut shrimp and one whole shrimp.

Then dig in and…

…enjoy every bite.
