  3. Gather all the ingredients and prep the plum tomatoes, Avocado and Cheese blend 50/50 shredded  Jack and Cheddar Cheese. 
  4. Prepare the Pico Di Gallo and Chipotle Ranch Dressing by mixing the  ingredients together. 
  5. To make the tacos, pre-heat a skillet Griswold pan over a medium heat.
  6. Place the butter in the pan with the lobster to heat it up and season the lobster with the chili spice. 
  7. Add additional butter to the pan and then the liquid egg to begin to  scramble the eggs.

Cooking and Handling Tips:

  • Use frozen lobster and when you purchase the lobster allow it to thaw out overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Place the lobster into a strainer or colander to drain the juice from it.
  • Squeeze excess juice from the lobster meat and cut it into ½ inch  chunks. 
  • Be sure all your ingredients are ready including the salsa and the ranch dressing which can be prepared a  day before you serve it.
  • Peel a ripe avocado and remove the pit. Slice the halves just when  ready to serve so they don’t discolor. 
  • Buy Taco Tray Holders online or from a local kitchen houseware store.
  • To serve use a quarter size cookie sheet tray with a paper napkin liner or butcher paper.
  • In Mexican cuisine, Pico De Gallo, also called salsa fresca or salsa  cruda, is traditionally  made from chopped tomato, onion, and cilantro, with lime juice mixed in. Simply using your favorite salsa from the supermarket and adding fresh chopped tomato and cilantro will do it for this dish.
