To make the crema, pulse all crema ingredients in a food processor or immersion blender until smooth, then set aside.

Step 4.

To make the shrimp, combine the chili powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Pat shrimp dry then toss with the spice mix to coat. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and sauté for 5–8 minutes, flipping once, until shrimp are cooked through.
