Mango-Pineapple Shrimp Nachos with Mango-Pineapple Guacamole

Mango-Pineapple Shrimp Nachos with Mango-Pineapple Guacamole

2 lbs Shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1 ¼ cup Jessi’s Flaming Fruit Sauce Mango-Pineapple Sauce
Tortilla chips
2 avocados
Shredded lettuce
Cotija cheese, sliced (or queso blanco)

Marinate shrimp in 1 cup of Mango-Pineapple Sauce for 1 to 3 hours.  Then grill or saute` just until no longer translucent.  Shrimp overcook very quickly, they only need a minute or two on each side.

Mash avocado with ¼ cup of Mango-Pineapple Sauce, add Salt and Pepper to taste.

Layer cheese, shrimp, guacamole and shredded lettuce on tortilla shell.  Add sour cream and salsa verde if desired.

This is an excellent (and quick/easy to prepare) appetizer to set out for parties!
