Ingredients

Directions

Toast the pepitas in a medium dry skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl; set aside.

Heat 1/4 inch of vegetable oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add the tortilla strips and fry, turning as needed, until golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel¿lined plate; season with salt and pepper. Let cool, then break each strip in half.

Make the dressing: Combine the crema, Cotija cheese, 1/4 cup cilantro, 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, the lime juice and garlic in a food processor; pulse until smooth, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons water if needed to loosen. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the dressing to a large bowl; add the romaine, pickled jalapenos, pepitas, shrimp, the remaining 1/4 cup cilantro and half of the tortilla strips. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Top each serving of salad with the remaining tortilla strips and more cheese.
