Ingredients

For the Chipotle Shrimp:

  • large whole raw shrimp peeled, deveined, tails-off
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chipotle chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Guacamole:

  • 3 ripe Hass avocados meat removed and mashed
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 large jalapeno stem and seeds removed, diced (or 2 jalapenos if more heat is preferred)
  • 1 large clove garlic peeled and diced
  • 2 heaping tablespoons diced red onion can use yellow or white onion if preferred

Instructions

For the Chipotle 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 sides 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:

  • Stir together and set 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.
  • Serve right away.
