Cooking Corner: Best Nachos Ever!

I just had to share this great recipe with you guys that Matt and I tried the other night~ Margarita Shrimp Nachos!  Oh. my. gosh. Talk about yumm!
Matt and I love to cook...ok, well  to be more precise Matt likes to cook, and I like to find the recipes and eat~ha! When I saw this recipe that combined our love for seafood, guacamole, and nachos I couldn't wait to try it. The best part is that it's really easy! We modified the recipe just a touch~
What you'll need:
1/2 lb shrimp: just get a bag of frozen shrimp
Margarita mix
Tortilla chips (recipe calls for lime flavored chips but we found it was too much lime so we do plain)
White cheddar cheese (shredded)
White cheese sauce in jar (this is our own addition~ it's better when it's saucy! ;)
1.Peel shrimp and marinate in margarita mix about an hour. While it's marinating, also let wooden skewers soak in water (this is so they won't catch fire when grilling)
2. Put shrimp on skewers and grill till it's slightly blackened on edges.
3. Spread chips on pan and sprinkle with cheddar cheese and cheese sauce. Bake at 350 for about 10 min or till cheese is all melted.
4. Sprinkle chopped onion, chopped cilantro, sliced avacodo, and shrimp over nachos.
5. Squeeze a little lime juice on there and folks, you've got yourselves a DIN-NER.

Confession: we ate this whole thing in one sitting.......just the two of us.....
Wouldn't this be a great Appetizer for a fun Mexican party?!
