Stir shrimp, chipotle and 1 tablespoon oil together in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Place avocado, 1/2 cup cilantro, yogurt, lime juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a mini food processor. Process until mostly smooth.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring once or twice, until just cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir to combine. Add cauliflower rice, scallions and water. Cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes.

Combine beans with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon cumin, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Combine corn and the remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro in another small bowl.

To serve, divide the cauliflower mixture among 4 bowls. Top with the shrimp, beans, corn and avocado crema.
