Serves 2. Easily doubled or tripled.
1 ½ cups cooked shrimp, shelled, tail removed, cut into half inch pieces.
1 ½ cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup cooked corn – mine was leftover confetti corn with red onion and orange
Peppers, but if you need corn, I’d recommend a can of Niblets goosed up with some onion, hot sauce and a spritz of fresh lime juice.
Salt and Pepper
1 ripe avocado, halved and sliced on the bias.

2 pounds (12 to 15-count) shrimp (24 to 30 Shrimp)
