Shrimp Chalupa with Mango Salsa

This is our version of a Mexican dish in which tortilla dough is shaped like a boat and fried until crisp; in fact, chalupa means "boat" in Spanish. Regular chili powder is a blend that tastes mostly of cumin. Chipotle chile powder is pure ground dried chiles, and it packs a hot punch. For more heat use all chipotle powder, or tame the spice by substituting all chili powder.
