Ready Time

25 mins


21 servings


  • ⅓ cup tortilla chips, or to taste
  • ½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • ¼ pound large peeled and deveined cooked shrimp, tails removed and shrimp quartered
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Position your oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat your oven’s broiler to high. Spread the tortilla chips evenly onto a lightly greased baking sheet, ensuring they form a single layer.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the Monterey Jack cheese, cooked and prepared shrimp, mayonnaise, finely chopped chipotle pepper, cilantro, minced onion, cumin, and black pepper. Mix thoroughly until well combined.
  • Evenly distribute the prepared mixture over the tortilla chips, ensuring each chip is adequately coated.
  • Carefully place the baking sheet under the preheated broiler. Broil for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the edges of the chips are golden brown.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the nachos to rest at room temperature for 2 minutes before serving. This resting time allows the cheese to set, ensuring a gooey and cohesive texture when you indulge. Enjoy the sizzling flavors of your freshly made Shrimp Nachos!
