Spicy and sweet! The Jamaican Jerk seasoning really works here, bringing all the flavors together. What an amazing taste sensation! I ended up being so busy today that I had to use pre-cooked shrimp, but it was still fabulous! I submitted the recipe the way it was written in Better Homes and Gardens, but I ended up using more cheese as we didn't think 4 oz. was enough. I used twice that much, a full 8 oz and broiled them on a baking sheet. It took about 5 minutes on the second-to-the-top position in my oven. YUM!

REALLY awesome! I love fresh mango salsas, and I especially LOVED the brown sugar/jerk seasoning on the shrimp! I used shrimp leftover from a crawfish boil, which worked just great. These nachos made a very quick and easy dinner for my family. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT5, for the Groovy GastroGnomes.
