Seafood Nachos Appetizer Recipe

Years ago, long before I was gluten free and dairy free, I used to LOVE going to Chi Chi’s restaurant to order Seafood Nachos, an appetizer that I always ate as my meal.  I was so sad when the restaurant chain closed, but when I discovered a Seafood Nachos appetizer recipe, I was ecstatic!  These taste just like the Seafood Nachos I remembered at a fraction of the price.

Of course, we’re gluten and dairy intolerant now, so we haven’t made this recipe for years.  However, my mom has no food restrictions, so while I’m in Michigan helping her recover from hip replacement surgery, I thought I’d make these for her.  She loved them, and I’m sure you will, too.

My daughters really wanted to try these, so when I get back home, I’m going to search for a way to make these allergen-friendly.  I don’t know if it’s possible, but I’ll try!

    What a great appetizer – I've got some canned crab meat in the cupboard so I think I might try that in the recipe. Sounds delicious!
