EASY SHRIMP NACHOS

— 1 tbsp blackened or Cajun seasoning
— 1 bg tortilla chips
— 1 jar fresh pico de gallo

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
For shrimp, add olive oil to a cast iron or heavy bottom skillet over medium high heat. Add raw shrimp to a bag and pour blackened seasoning over it. Shake the shrimp in the bag to make sure the seasoning sticks. Fry shrimp in an even layer for 2 minutes on each side and set aside.
Next begin layering process. Add half of tortilla chips, followed by half of pico de gallo and half of cheese, then repeat with remaining tortilla chips, pico de gallo and shredded cheese.
Top nachos with shrimp and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until everything has melted together and is hot and bubbly.
Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes, then top with cilantro (if desired) and serve.
