  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
  2. Butter each side of the tortillas and cut into even quarters, making 24 pieces.
  3. Place one piece in each cup of a muffin tin and push down so it creates a cup shape. (Make 2 batches or use 2 muffin tins to make the full amount of cups).
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crisp.
  5. In a bowl, mix together shrimp, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, chili powder, cayenne, garlic, and lime juice.

  7. In another bowl, combine diced avocado, tomato, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Stir gently.
  8. Assemble the cups by placing a spoonful of the avocado salsa in the toasted cup. Place a piece of shrimp on top, followed by a dollop of sour cream.
  9. Serve with lime wedges.
  10. Enjoy!
