Shrimp and Crab Nachos

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Docs Mom

This recipe was in the April 2010 Coastal Living Magazine. Created by Chef Jeff Tunks, Passionfish in Reston, VA. "I love the classic mixture of tortilla chips, melted cheese, and pickled jalapenos; adding shrimp and crabmeat just takes it to a new level."

Me and my sister made this DECILIOUS dish last night and LOVED it! I will say i didnt care for the cumin tase. Kinda over powered the other ingredients. 1 tsp of olive oil didnt seem like enough so we added a little more and next time we'll add less of the cumin and more garlic as i couldnt even taste it. We only made half our batch and will be eating the rest today for lunch. We added black olives too. This is a great snack to make for the whole family!!!
