On one tortilla spread 1/4 cup of the avocado mixture, leaving 1-inch border around the edges. Top with a layer of spinach. Sprinkle with a scant 2 tablespoons almonds and about 1/4 cup shrimp. Roll up tightly. Secure with a party pick, if necessary, to prevent unrolling. Repeat with remaining tortillas, avocado mixture, spinach, almonds, and shrimp.
