Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad

I got this recipe from

I added a bit of Arizona Dreaming, one of my favorite current spices. We put in on everything from popcorn to eggs. It is so good. Kind of limey, chocolatey, spicey and wonderful. If you want to have some let me know, so you don't have to buy any.

We also put this on tortillas which helps it be less healthy. But it was so refreshing and good.
