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.

6. Cook over medium high heat for 8 minutes, flipping halfway. Set aside.

7. In another bowl, combine diced avocado, tomato, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, 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.
