How to Prepare our Shrimp Skillet Nachos
To prepare them, all we need to do is season shrimp with a store-bought taco seasoning mix. Heat a medium ovenproof skillet over medium heat, add oil, and cook shrimp for about 4 minutes.
Then, squeeze on lime juice and place on a plate or in a bowl.
Layer a thick layer of chips, both purple and yellow, in the same skillet used to cook the shrimp. Drizzle the nacho cheese over the chips, spoon on half of the cooked shrimp, and scatter on the shredded cheese. Repeat layering once more.
Next, bake at 350 degrees F for about 5-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Remove from the oven, top nachos with avocado, tomatoes, red onion, Serrano or jalapeno peppers, chopped cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. Serve warm with sour cream and/or lime wedges.
This is the type of recipe that doesn’t require any special skills and is quick to make. I am telling you, honey, this is one of the tastiest appetizers ever.
