Spicy Shrimp Nachos

My boyfriend loves it when I make this special shrimp nacho snack for him and his buddies on game day. To be honest, I would rather they eat this than the chips, dip and pizza that are the usual snacks of choice with his group. This recipe can be easily doubled and tripled for larger crowds. Just make sure it all goes because it does not keep too well!

Shrimp Recipe From Lobster Gram
Ingredients

  • 1 cup mango, seeded, peeled, and chopped
  • 1 medium red sweet pepper, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion
  • 1 fresh jalapeƱo chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Jamaican jerk seasoning
  • 1 lb large or jumbo shrimp
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 cups tortilla chips (8 oz.)
  • 4 oz. Monterrey Jack cheese shredded
Recipe Directions:
Preheat broiler. For salsa, in a bowl stir together mango, sweet pepper, onion, and chile pepper; set aside. In a large bowl stir together brown sugar and jerk seasoning. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Coat a grill pan or large skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Add half the shrimp at a time to the pan. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes each side or until shrimp are opaque. Remove and set aside. If desired, coarsely chop shrimp. Spread tortilla chips on a broiler-safe platter or baking sheet. Top with shrimp and salsa. Sprinkle with cheese. Broil 4 inches from heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Makes 8 servings.
