Caribbean Nachos

Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe combines spicy, sweet, and salty with a definite Caribbean flair. The multigrain chips make it a heartier and healthier dish, and add a wonderful nutty flavor. Chicken can be subbed for the shrimp, but increase the cooking time as necessary. Serve with sour cream and picante salsa."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Layer the chips on a tray or cookie sheet. Arrange the red pepper, orange pepper, onion, avocado, and pineapple on top of the chips.
  3. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly crisp; drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Chop the bacon and sprinkle over the nachos.
  4. Pour the jerk marinade into a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring continually, until the marinade reduces to a thick sticky consistency, about 3 minutes. Add the shrimp and stir to coat; cook until the shrimp are hot. Scatter the shrimp over the nachos; top with Monterrey Jack cheese and cilantro.
  5. Place the nachos in the oven until the cheese is melted, about 7 minutes.

I was not a real fan of this recipe, but I think it was the Caribbean jerk marinade on the shrimp that I didn't like. I picked the shrimp out and liked the rest of it a little better. The rest...

In the midst of watching the Pats game and eating these nachos. Everyone loves them, a great twist on a game-time favorite. Used the smallest shrimp I could find (salad shrimp) and they are ju...

These were the most amazing food ever! We regularly eat nachos as a dinner meal and are going to add this recipe to our regularly made dishes. Since there are just two of us...this recipe was ...

Wonderful recipe. I used jerk chicken instead of shrimp. It was a success and even the kids loved it!

"Filling" SUPER tasty but think it would be soooo much better in taco shells, maybe even a quesadilla- the tortilla chips just didn't do it justice!

These are wonderful! I wouldn't make it with avacodo because they get old quick and it doesn't make for good leftovers.

I think it was pretty good, but I love salsa with my nachos. Think next time I'm going to add a twist and try it with mango salsa! A must try recipe overall!
