Shrimp and Guacamole in Scoops

This past Thursday was Gals Night Out, in spite of the drizzle, then downpour outside!  It was bright and shiny inside and I prepared several appetizers including this one.  There is no way to be delicate in eating this…just pop the whole shrimp and chip right in your mouth!  I read a recipe in Rachel Ray‘s magazine and then made it my own by tweaking each ingredient and prep method.  Note to self…Don’t serve this on a green tray next time. The guacamole gets “lost” on this platter!Shrimp Guac Scoops
