    My daughter thought this had an unusual combo of ingredients also. I really liked it! I used less chips, dried spices (including coriander for the fresh cilantro) and already cooked shrimp. Pretty tasty - I did not have to use extra salt when it was done. The avocados tasted good with it too.

    This dish has an unusual mix of ingredients. As I put it together, I wasn't sure we would like it. It was a nice surprise when it came out of the oven. It has a good flavor. I will make it again, but with less chips on top.
