Once again the Sincronizada! The often forgot step brother of the folded quesadilla. Traditionally made with ham I can not leave well enough alone and decided to use a pork sausage and some shrimp on this recipe. I was not fully happy with the taste, so I made an Avocado sauce that sent Zo and I to taste bud heaven!

1/3 lb longaniza (chopped)
12 medium shrimp (peeled, detailed)
1/2 of a jalapeno (diced)
1/4 cup red onion
1 garlic clove
1/3 cup chipotle cheddar (shredded)
1/4 cup white cheddar (shredded)
4 10 inch flour or corn tortillas

Avocado Sauce
1 medium to large ripe avocado
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp de arbol chili powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Avocado Sauce
In a small mixing bowl mush avocado into a thick paste, add seasonings and mix till evenly colored.

In a 10 inch skillet add longaniza, jalapeno, garlic and onion. Turn heat to medium and cook for 7-10 minutes or until onions are turning translucent. Add the shrimp and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes or until the shrimp are turning bright orange and pink. Remove from heat and pour mixture into a bowl. Wipe out skillet with paper towel and sit back on burner.

Mix cheeses together in a small bowl.

Take one tortilla and spread 1/3-1/2 of the avocado sauce evenly onto it. Now sprinkle 1/2 of the meat mixture over the avocado sauce, then sprinkle with 1/2 of cheese and finally top with a tortilla. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients.

Add Sincronizadas one at a time to your heated skillet and cook covered 2-3 minutes per side or until cheese has fully melted.

Serve warm with a salsa and left over Avocado Sauce!
