The best part about these is the cook time which is short and the result is a unique appetizer or dinner that is also gluten free.

The guacamole recipe I use in all my recipes is from the Chipotle Twitter account. It is the best one I have ever tried!

This shrimp recipe is also the same one used in all of the blog’s Mexican inspired dishes.

The salsa grand finale topping we buy jarred. Of course you can make your own at home with some tomatoes, jalapeno, onions, garlic, lime juice and spices. The jar works just fine here though.
