Shrimp and Guacamole Bites


The big game is coming up on Sunday and is a great excuse to make lots of snacks. After making these recently for a dinner party appetizer, I can guarantee that these delicious shrimp and guacamole bites will make the list, probably along with apple keilbasa, Greek layered dip, and creamy brussels sprouts dip.

This fun app could not be easier: make guacamole (or use store bought!), spoon it into some tortilla chips, and top with a shrimp that you've covered in delicious spices and warmed up. These are addictive, and rightly so: such a great combination of creamy, spicy, crunchy, shrimpy. Who are you cheering for on Sunday? I really don't care this year, but you can be sure I'll be rooting for the snacks.

Shrimp and Guacamole Bites

Guacamole:
2 avocados, peeled and pitted
juice from half a lime
1/3 tsp. salt; possibly more to taste
2 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion
1 tsp. minced garlic

Tortilla scoop chips
1/2 pound medium cooked shrimp (about 24-30)
2 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
1/4 tsp. salt

To make the guacamole: Mash up the avocado in a small bowl. Add in lime juice, onion, garlic and salt. Stir well to combine; taste and add more lime juice or salt to taste.

In a small bowl, toss the shrimp with olive oil. Sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, paprika and salt. Stir well to coat all the shrimp. Transfer the shrimp to a baking sheet and bake at 400 for 2-3 minutes.

While the shrimp cooks, scoop the guacamole into the tortilla chips. Place a warm shrimp on top of each guacamole-filled chip, and serve immediately. Serves 6.

  2. I do miss watching the Super Bowl now I'm in the wrong time zone for it! I managed to catch a little of the half time show online though :-) Your Shrimp Guacamole Bites look absolutely delicious, Sara. They are perfect for entertaining - in fact I'm putting these on the list to serve at my next cocktail party. Thank you so much for being a part of Hearth and Soul.
