Let's Make It
Cook tomatoes and garlic in medium skillet on high heat 10 to 12 min. or until roasted, turning occasionally; peel garlic. Blend tomatoes, garlic, anchos, juice and annatto paste in blender until smooth. Pour into small saucepan; bring to boil. Simmer on medium-low heat 5 min., stirring frequently.
Combine rice and cheese; spoon onto centers of 8 (15x12-inch) sheets of parchment paper. Top with shrimp, avocado leaves and tomato sauce. Bring corners of each parchment sheet to center to enclose filling; tie closed with butcher's string.
Pour 3 cups water into 8-qt. stockpot fitted with steamer basket. Line bottom of basket with foil; place bundles in single layer in basket. Cover with damp kitchen towel, then cover pot with lid. Bring water to boil; simmer on medium-high heat 25 min., adding more boiling water to pot as necessary.
To prevent the stockpot from boiling dry, add several coins to the water in bottom of stockpot fitted with steamer basket. The coins will rattle throughout the cooking time. If the rattling stops, then you know that you need to add more water to the pot. No need to remove the steamer basket; just carefully add the water through one of its sides.
