    Manami's Note:

    Recipe by Sue Torres from "A Denim & Cockatil Guru's Mexican Fiesta," Food & Wine Magazine, 01/2008 edition. "I created this dish late one night when I was hungry and tired of my menu," Sue Torres says. "The tequila adds a little smokiness to the shrimp, and I liked the great textural difference between the creamy avocado and the crispy tostada." At Los Dados, Torres fries homemade tortilla rounds to make the base for this crunchy appetizer; here, we’ve substituted store-bought chips. Fast & healthy.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a bowl, mash the avocado, pineapple, beans, scallions and 1 tablespoon of the lime juice; season with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Heat a large skillet until very hot.
    3. 3
      Add the oil and heat until shimmering.
    4. 4
      Season the shrimp with salt and pepper; add to the skillet along with the garlic and cook, shaking the pan frequently, until the shrimp are almost cooked through, about 2 minutes.
    5. 5
      Remove the skillet from the heat and add the tequila.
    6. 6
      Tilt the pan slightly over the burner to ignite the tequila and cook until the flames subside. (Alternatively, remove the pan from the heat and ignite with a match, then return to the heat.)
    7. 7
      Stir in the chipotle, butter and the remaining 2 tablespoons of lime juice, swirling until the butter is melted and the liquid is slightly reduced, about 2 minutes longer; season with salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Spoon the avocado mixture onto the tortilla chips and top with the shrimp.
    9. 9
      Drizzle some of the tequila sauce on top and serve right away.
