Spicy Cajun Shrimp Nachos

Spicy Cajun Shrimp Nachos

So… I made spicy shrimp nachos for the first time last night. They were amazing, so amazing in fact that the nachos never made it onto a plate. I just ate them right off of the baking sheet. Nachos this good I knew I had to share, along with some tasty adjustments I made to the recipe.


In my opinion the nachos weren’t spicy enough so I substituted haberno jack cheese for pepper jack cheese and I added fire-roasted jalapenos for a smoky flavor. My friend who feasted alongside me suggested that canned artichokes sprinkled on top would add a nice vinegary bite to counter the spicy flavor of the cheese sauce and shrimp. While I adapted the recipe to suit my taste, please follow the cooking direction found on the Fake Ginger food blog.
