  • grill

  • Cutting Board
  • platter
  • 2 medium ziplock bags


  • 1 bag Tostitos Scoops
  • 2 red bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • guacamole see notes
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 30 shrimp medium cleaned
  • 3 tbsp Southern Fellow Rub see notes
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


The Shrimp

  • Preheat your grill to about 400 degrees.
  • Make sure your shrimp is peeled, deveined and the the tails are removed.
  • Place the shrimp on the skewers.
  • Oil both sides with some olive oil. After that generously season the shrimp with our Southern Fellow rub.

Bell Pepper

  • Coat both bell peppers with olive oil and generously season with salt and pepper.
  • Grill Time
  • Place the bell peppers on the grill. The key is to get most of the outside you can black. Blackened the first to sides. This will take about 5 minutes. Add the shrimp to the grill and cook for 2-3 on each side while you finish blackening the bell pepper. The shrimp should be completely white on the inside. Remove everything from the grill. Place the shrimp in the fridge and let the bell peppers cool until they can easy be handled.
  • Remove the skin, stem and seeds from the bell peppers. Using a knife give them a fine dice.

The Finish

  • Remove the leaves from the cilantro. Place the guacamole and sour cream in a separate ziplock bag. Cut a small hole in each bag at the corner.
  • Fill each Tostitos Scoop with half way with the guacamole using the ziplock bag as a piping bag. Next place a leaf of cilantro towards the edge of each shell. Place the shrimp on top of the cilantro leaf. Using a spoon place about 1/4 of a teaspoon of the diced red pepper on each shell. Last finish by piping th sour cream on.
  • Plate on a festive platter and enjoy!
