  • 2 T. Vegetable oil
  • 3/4 lb. (1 1/2 cups) rock shrimp
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 T. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 T. plus 2 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. minced canned chipotle chiles in adobo
  • 1/2 tsp. each minced garlic and dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. onion salt
  • 1/2 cup uncooked corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 3 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 48 cilantro leaves for garnishing



Step 1

Heat 1 T. of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and cook until pink, 2 or 3 minutes. When cool, chop coarsely. Stir together the cream cheese and the next 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add the corn, red pepper, and shrimp. Refrigerate until chilled. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the tortillas in a stack and trim the edges to from 6-inch squares. Brush both sides of each tortilla with the remaining 1 T. oil, restack, and cut into 16 squares. Using a mini muffin tin, press a square firmly into the bottom of each cup. Season lightly with salt. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool. Fill each tortilla cup with 1 tsp. of the shrimp mixture. Garnish with a cilantro leaf. Makes 48 cups
