  5. Place one tortilla and sprinkle cheese on one side or over the whole tortilla, scoop some guacamole (as little or as much as you want it) then top it with shrimp don’t overcrowd it then top it with another cheese.

    If you're filling the whole surface of the tortilla, you need to cover it (after filling) with another tortilla instead of folding.
