1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1- Cook pasta according to package directions and drain. Set aside.
2- Place chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper into a small bowl, stirring to combine. 

3- Pat the shrimp dry, then place in the spices and rub into both sides. 
4- Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large, oven-safe pot over medium heat. Add shrimp and cook until pink on both sides, about 3-4 minutes each side. 
5- Remove from pan and cover with foil until ready to serve.
6- In the now-empty skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, cooking and stirring until tender, about 5 minutes. Add salsa, tomatoes, and sour cream, stirring to combine. Just before serving add cooled pasta to the sauce and stir to combine. Top with the shrimp.

2 ripe Haas avocados
1 lime, juiced
1 garlic clove, finely minced 
1 small roma tomato, diced
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

Open ripe avocados, remove the seed and scoop out the flesh into a large bowl. Squeeze lime juice over avocados and mash slightly. Stir in remaining ingredients and serve! I find it is best when you let the guacamole sit in the fridge 20-30 minutes to let the garlic work its magic.
