Shrimp Nachos

I am always looking to add protein (at least some nutrition, right?) when I am craving some greasy quesadillas or tacos. When a family friend shared this nacho recipe, smothered with fresh shrimp and a sour cream topping, I knew I had discovered a match made in seafood and snack-food heaven. I liked how shrimp deviated from the typical beef or chicken topping on nachos, while adding a summery flair. These upgraded nachos will be an unexpected, but welcomed, pairing for any BBQ or summer gathering in store for July.
