- 12 ounces corn tortilla chips
- 24 ounces Pace Chunky Salsa Medium
- 1 1/2 cups Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese

De-vein, and peel shrimp.
Add oil, spices, and shrimp to a small skillet and cook for about 3 minutes over medium heat turning the shrimp once. Shrimp cook quickly and will be pink when cooked throughout.
Once shrimp are done, remove them from the heat and set them aside.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Chop & prepare all your veggies.
Add all your chips to your cast iron skillet. I used a 12" double handled variety.
Add cheese and try to cover the chips underneath as well as on top.
Add drained and rinsed beans.
Add Salsa, and chopped onion & tomato.
Add 1 tbsp of cilantro, olives, and shrimp.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Top with remaining cilantro, and fresh avocado.
For additional flavor, add sour cream/Greek yogurt and Pace Picante Sauce – Medium to each portion. Enjoy!
Shrimp can be cooked ahead of time and added on right before baking.
You can jazz up canned shrimp by draining them, adding them to a small skillet with 1 tablespoon of oil and 1/2 tsp of taco seasoning. Pan fry for about 1 minute to give them some much-needed flavor.
You can also prepare your vegetables ahead of time so that your dinner nachos can be ready quicker.
