Once the shrimp has turned pink, add the water chestnuts and stir. Add the sugar, cilantro stems, lime zest and juice, remove from heat. For the tomato salsa: Put the tomatoes and green onions in a small bowl. Add the lime juice, cilantro leaves and stems and mix. Season the salsa with sugar and salt. For the creamed avocado: Put the avocados in a bowl, add the lime juice and chopped green onion. Add the sugar and sour cream. Mash until the mixture is incorporated. Season with salt. To assemble the shrimp and pork tacos: Place the tortilla shells on a plate. Divide the pork and shrimp filling among the tortilla shells. Spoon the filling in the center of the taco.
