Shrimp Nachos

Are you planning a Superbowl party this week? If so, these tasty treats would be a wonderful addition. They would also be fabulous at any kind of party where you're standing around wtih a drink in one hand and trying to manage also eating appetizers - they are just the right size that you can pop one in your mouth, and not have to bite it in half and worry that the other half could land on your silk dress. (Not that I would know anything about that.) Actually, these treats are great any night of the week, party or not. So just make them already!

These come together really quickly once you've chopped up a few ingredients. Start by slicing the green onions and olives (or used presliced) and chopping the shrimp.

In a large-ish bowl, combine the green chiles,

green onions,



mayo (you can use light mayo if you want) and cheese.

Stir it up well to blend all ingredients, then add the cumin.

Stir it up again!

Place the tortilla scoops on a rimmed baking sheet (you'll probably need two baking sheets) and fill them each with about a tablespoon of filling.

Once your sheet is full of filled shells,

bake for 5-10 minutes, just until the cheese is melted. Serve warm, with a dollop of salsa on top, if you like. Let the party begin!

Shrimp Nachos

3/4 pound peeled cooked shrimp, chopped
1/3 cup sliced green onions

1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
1/4 tsp. cumin
48 tortilla chip scoops

In a large bowl, combine the shrimp, green onions, olives, green chiles, mayo, cheese and cumin. Stir well. Place tortilla scoops on a rimmed baking sheet. Drop shrimp mixture by tablespoonfuls into tortilla scoops. Bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with salsa and sour cream, if desired.
