Before I start telling you all about these Shrimp Avocado Wraps,  I should begin with my obsession with guacamole and pita chips?

If you follow me on Facebook (if you don’t , click here!) you already know that, but can I say it again? I could feed on guacamole and pita chips for the rest of my life.

I make my guacamole with avocado, a lot of red onion, a pinch of salt and sometimes a splash of lime. That’s all, I like to keep it simple.

There’s something special and addictive about this avocado/onion combination (we’ll get that combo in these Shrimp Avocado Wraps as well). Serve pita chips with it and I’m in heaven.

Unfortunately, they don’t sell Stacy’s pita chips (my favorites) here in Australia so I have to make my own. And well, it’s not such a bad thing because I like to make everything from scratch when possible and it’s honestly very easy.

If you have a toaster, well, it’s as easy as toasting a slice of bread. Yep, you know my secret now: I make my pita chips by toasting some pita bread. Couldn’t get easier, right?

So, now that I always have pita bread in the pantry, I am always ready to make chips, pizza (I use it as my base!), or delicious healthy wraps like these whole wheat wraps with shrimp, avocado and spinach!

These Shrimp Avocado Wraps are clearly Mexican-inspired but I decided to use pita bread instead of a tortilla because that’s what I had on hand.

Of course, if you want to use a tortilla for your Shrimp Avocado Wraps, they’ll be just as good!
