Shrimp Guacamole Wraps

This recipe combines some unusual ingredients and is delicious. You could use a ready-made guacamole to save time if you wanted to.

Shrimp Guacamole Wraps

1 lb raw, peeled shrimp
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp Cavendar's seasoning
1/4 tsp pepper
1 avocado, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 cup cooked corn
1 cup cooked black beans, rinsed and drained
chopped lettuce
flour tortillas

Whisk together avocado, cilantro, salt, and pepper until smooth.
(You could also add jalapeno, onion, tomatoes, and/or lime juice).

Melt butter in a skillet, add garlic, and saute shrimp until done, about 5 minutes. Add seasonings while cooking.

Have your filling ingredients ready:

Warm the tortillas in an ungreased skillet on medium heat for about 15 seconds on each side:

Slather on the guacamole:

Then the lettuce and shrimp:

Then the black beans and corn. I also added a little extra guacamole:

Roll up the tortilla. I didn't fold in each end because I decided to wrap it in parchment paper.
This makes it easier to eat, and is also great if you are taking them somewhere:

Roll as shown:

Then slice in half through the parchment.

Very easy and very nutritious.

I love to combine shrimp and avocado! Yum! What is cavendar's seasoning?

It is a Greek seasoning that contains salt, pepper, and other spices. It is great on chicken, pork, steak and stir-fry. It is in a yellow container on the spice aisle.

Yummy! I can't wait to try that one. Oh, and I put cavenders on just about everything. I know I shouldn't but I love it.
