DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl, mash the avocado, pineapple, beans, scallions and 1 tablespoon of the lime juice; season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a large skillet until very hot.
  • Add the oil and heat until shimmering.
  • 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.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and add the tequila.
  • 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.)
  • 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.
  • Spoon the avocado mixture onto the tortilla chips and top with the shrimp.
  • Drizzle some of the tequila sauce on top and serve right away.
