Sheet Pan Spicy Shrimp Nachos

shrimp nachos

I always crave nachos this time of year. It must be because my tummy knows that the big game is around the corner and a warm, spicy, and cheesy dish is what I want.

Frozen shrimp from Kroger is the go-to seafood in our household and I wanted to incorporate it into our Super Bowl menu. Making shrimp at home is simple and quick.

After I peeled and deveined the shrimp I sprinkled them with salt and pepper, then drizzled them with fresh lime juice.

After I cooked the shrimp I slow simmered them in a spicy sauce made with dried California chiles. The sauce is similar to a rustic and spicy enchilada sauce.

Camarones a La Diabla Deviled Shrimp

This spicy shrimp dish is called Camarones a La Diabla (Deviled Shrimp) and is a Mexican dish usually served as a main meal along with a side of white rice, but I decided to incorporate this spicy shrimp dish onto nachos.

If serving this dish to children you might want to make a separate batch with the addition of tomato sauce to mellow out the heat.

Once the shrimp is cooked then its time to have fun making nachos. I have small sheet pans, which are perfect for two servings.

If you are hosting Super Bowl make the Camarones a La Diabla and set up a nacho bar with a variety of toppings for your guests to assemble their own nachos.
