This is a kicked up version of guacamole. I love regular guacamole, but I came up with this version and kinda love it even more.
Cut in half 4 ripe avocados. Remove the seeds and scoop out the meat into a mixing bowl. Lightly mash it with a fork, but leave it kind of lumpy. Using a sharp knife, cut one large Roma tomato into small cubes and add to the avocado. Hand chop into tiny pieces 1/4 of a small shallot and stir into the avocados and tomatoes and add about a cup of frozen or fresh salad shrimp. Stir gently. Add 2 teaspoon lime juice and mix. Season to taste with salt and red pepper flakes.
Serve with thin pita chips.
- This is easy and quick to make. You can easily increase the amounts of ingredients to make bigger batches.
- Make sure to hand chop the ingredients. Using a chopper will make it too runny. You want it to be chunky.
- Cover and keep refrigerated until serving.
- You could serve it with restaurant style tortilla chips instead of the pitas, but I like the pitas best.
