  • 1- pound raw shrimp — 26–30 count - peeled and deveined, thawed to package directions
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup Sprouts brand Hatch Chile Guacamole - found in the produce section
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro — plus more to garnish
  • 1 cucumber about 8-10" - peeled and sliced into 1/2" rounds
  • ¼ cup queso fresco - crumbled


  • To a large mixing bowl, drizzle shrimp with 2 tablespoons olive oil, then sprinkle with 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, ½ teaspoon smoked paprika, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt. Toss to coat.
  • Thread your shrimp on a skewer for easy grilling.
  • Preheat your grill to 350-450 degrees F. Grill the shrimp over direct, medium heat for 5-7 minutes, turning the shrimp halfway through the process. The outside of the shrimp should turn a nice pink color when it is cooked while the meat inside should be white and opaque.
  • In a small bowl, combine 1 cup Hatch Chile Guacamole with the 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice and 1 tablespoon cilantro.
  • To assemble the bites: Top each cucumber round with a spoonful of Hatch Chile Guacamole and a grilled shrimp. Garnish with additional fresh cilantro and queso fresco. Serve immediately.
