SHRIMP AND CHEDDAR NACHOS

3/4 lb frozen cooked cleaned medium shrimp, thawed
2 tbsp zesty Italian salad dressing
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 tbsp blackened seasoning
8-oz (6 cups) tortilla chips
8-oz Shredded Triple Cheddar cheese
1 green onion, chopped
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 jalapeno pepper, sliced thin

Heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat until it is hot enough to smoke.  Add 1 tablespoon of the Italian dressing, shrimp, bell pepper, and the blackened seasoning.  Cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes or until the shrimp is heated through and evenly coated.  Stir in the remaining salad dressing.

Cover a large microwave-safe plate (be sure it will fit into your microwave!) with layers of half each of chips, shrimp mixture, and the cheese; repeat layers.

Microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Rotate place after a minute if your microwave does not have a turntable. 

Before serving, top with the onion, cilantro, and jalapeno pepper.












Yield: 6 to 8 servings

This is my version of a recipe I saw of The Neely's.
