Fresh shrimp are coated with Salsa Ranchera tortilla chip crumbs and baked at a high heat until crispy and perfect!  My favorite way to eat them is dipped in a quick and easy homemade guacamole.

I’ve partnered with Frito Lay to showcase a few of their brands this summer.  Today’s featured brand is their Tostitos® Salsa Ranchera Tortilla Chips.  These chips are my newest obsession.  They have the absolute best flavor without being too spicy.

How to Make Crispy Baked Salsa Ranchera Shrimp

You’ll need just five ingredients to make Crispy Baked Salsa Ranchera Shrimp.

  • shrimp
  • Tostitos® Salsa Ranchera Tortilla Chips
  • egg white
  • avocados
  • Tostitos® Mild Chunky Salsa

crushed Salsa Ranchera Chips

You’ll begin by crushing half a bag of the Salsa Ranchera Tortilla Chips.  The spices in these chips help to make the perfect coating and flavor for the shrimp.

The shrimp is tossed with an egg white to give it a light coating before tossing with the crumbs.  The egg white helps adhere the crumbs to the shrimp.  Then you’ll bake the shrimp at a high heat for just 12 minutes.


I recommend serving the shrimp with a super quick and easy guacamole.  You can make it lickety split while the shrimp is in the oven.  Mashed avocado with a couple of tablespoons of Tostitos® Mild Chunky Salsa mixed in makes a delicious dip for the shrimp!

The shrimp emerges from the oven with crispy crumbs attached to it.

Display the shrimp on a platter with a bowl of the guacamole.  I like to add a few fresh lime slices for (optional) squeezing onto the shrimp and the guac.  Lime is a delicious addition!

These Crispy Baked Salsa Ranchera Shrimp are best eaten with a fork so you don’t drop crumbs into the guacamole.  They are the perfect, quick and easy appetizer to make for entertaining this summer.  My family also enjoys these as a light dinner too!

    I loved the smashed chips as shrimp coating. It came out excellent, with a slight crunch when you bite in. I think the possibilities are endless with salsas and seasonings to be very creative.
