  • Author: Kalee
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 3 bell peppers, any color
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 jar of your favorite salsa
  • 1 (12oz) or larger bag of corn tortilla chips
  • 2 cups shredded monterrey jack cheese
  • 12 oz frozen or fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 (15oz) can beans, any type, drained and rinsed
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • cilantro, for serving


  1. Begin by slicing the bell peppers and onions into thin strips. Heat oil in large skillet, and saute peppers and onions over medium heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from skillet. Add shrimp to skillet with 1/2 cup of salsa and saute over medium heat just until cooked completely (shrimp should be opaque white and heated all the way through). Now its time to build your nachos! Start with a layer of tortilla chips, then add 1/4 of the beans, 1/4 of the peppers, 1/2 cup shredded cheese, more chips, 1/4 of the shrimp, and 1/2 cup more cheese. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute or until the cheese is melted. Top with avocado, cilantro, and salsa. Repeat with 3 more plates of nachos. Enjoy!
