Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    6 tbsp Sour Cream
    2 1tsp Olive Oil
    1.50 fruit without skin and seeds Avocados, California (Haas)
    0.25 cup, chopped Onions, raw
    40 large Shrimp, cooked
    5 oz Chipotle and Cilantro Salsa
    3 cup, shredded Cheddar Cheese

Tips

Make salsa ahead of time (note: it only keeps for a few days to a week as it does not have preservatives added) Prep time includes baking shells


Directions

(See my Salsa recipe to make the marinade.)

Pre-heat oven to 350.

Peel and De-Vein Shrimp, marinade for 30 min.

While shrimp is marinating we will make the "taco shells". Take 1/2 cup of cheese and spread it out on parchment paper in a thin layer with little to no holes showing through. Repeat 6 times (you may need to work in batches). Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, until edges are browned well. Remove from oven and using a spatula flip one half of the shell over onto the other half, forming the shell shape. Do this before it has a chance to cool. Set aside until ready to eat.

Heat pan to medium or medium high heat. Add olive oil and onion. sweat the onions until lightly browned then add the shrimp. Cook shrimp until pink all over.

Assemble tacos: 1/4 avocado, one tablespoon sour cream, approx 6-8 shrimp, one teaspoon salsa, Per Taco. Honestly, thats just how I do it, you can make it however you like....
