1. Cut avocados all the way around with a sharp knife. Remove pit, scoop out flesh and put into food processor.
2. Add the lime juice, sour cream and chipotles in adobo. Pulse until smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl.
3. Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cover and cook chorizo sausage until browned and cooked through, about 7 minutes. Remove from pan and slice diagonally. Add oil, garlic and shrimp to pan. Season shrimp with salt and pepper and cook until pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a cutting board and coarsely chop.
4. Add a drizzle of oil to the pan and add a tortilla. Cook tortilla for 30 seconds, then turn over. Cover half the tortilla with 1/2 cup of cheese. Arrange chorizo and shrimp over the cheese and fold tortilla over. Press down gently with a spatula and cook tortilla a minute or so on each side to melt cheese and to lightly brown.
5. Remove to cutting board – repeat with remaining ingredients. Cut each quesadilla in wedges and top with smoky guacamole.
