As a mom there’s a few questions I dread coming from the mouths of my children. One would be “did you get that note from my teacher?”, not usually a good note if you know what I mean. Another would be “what’s for dinner?”. I only dread that particular question because 9 times out of 10 their response is “not that again”. I often feel like responding that way also as I get stuck in a rut making meals and then need to snap out of it and get the creative juices flowing again.

And that’s how Popcorn Shrimp Nachos appeared at our dinner table one night. I combined two family favorites into one deliciously easy meal! Summer break has arrived for us, which means our schedule is all over the place (in a good way). There are kids sleeping in, there are kids staying up late, there’s mom not shuttling kids here, there and everywhere.

When its time for dinner to happen, my summer motto is “Chillax, you’ve got this!”.  The easier the better, I’m not spending all day prepping in the kitchen when there’s gloriously wonderful weather to enjoy.  Wanna know what I’m keeping in my freezer to help me get dinner on the table and get us back outdoors?

SeaPak products are the perfect way to get dinner on the table in a snap! Did you know the USDA recommends eating at least two 4-ounce servings of seafood each week? We love shrimp and having SeaPak products readily available for all sorts of recipes just makes sense!

The basis of this super simple recipe starts with SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp. Simply cook according to package directions. Next you layered them on top of tortilla chips, add in cheese, black beans, tomatoes…pretty much any toppings your family enjoys. Cook until the cheese is melted and enjoy! I drizzled some Cilantro Lime Crema over the top and dinner was DONE!

  1. Oh yum this sounds absolutely delicious, shrimps have to be one of my favourite treats and with nachos too! Perfect.

    My husband would totally freak out over these nachos! Popcorn shrimp and nachos?!? That is like heaven for him!

  13. Neha Saini says:

    Nachos are my all-time favorite. Nachos are anything but typical. No corn chips, no chili, and no lack of imagination arrive piled high with house fired wanton chips smothered with auteed popcorn shrimp and crayfish, kalamata olives, sliced banana peppers, fresh red onion, scallions, tomatoes, and tasty spinach cheese sauce.

  14. My kids would love this recipe. Anything with the word nacho in it is a winning dinner!

  15. I didn’t know that you can combine nachos, popcorns, and shrimps. Such a unique idea.

  16. Why have I never thought of doing this before??! Brilliant idea and a great appetizer too!

  17. Catvills says:

    Wow. I should look for those popcorn shrimp at the store. It does look yummy and there are a gazillion things you can make with it, or just have it as it is for a healthy snack. The nacho recipe you shared looks fantastic. I’m going to make that soon as I get a package of the popcorn shrimp.

  18. We make nachos at least once a week but I’ve never thought to use popcorn shrimp as my meat filler. I can’t wait to try your recipe. I love popcorn shrimp.
