  1. Andria, when you made this on Charlotte Today you said the Avocado cream had cumin in it but I don’t see that in the posted recipe. Is there cumin and if so, how much? The shrimp tacos sound delicious – can’t wait to try this recipe. Thank you…

    1. Hi Jayne,
      Just add 1/4 teaspoon cumin to the avocado sauce. It will add a little smokiness in the background. I hope you enjoy the tacos.
