Cajun Etouffee Nachos

We are always entertaining and I’m always thinking of unique party-friendly, filling food that I can serve. We’ll be watching the football playoffs and I want big flavors for the big game! Since we just got home from New Orleans I have Cajun flavors on the brain, the whole drive home I was thinking about creating NOLA inspired nachos. Cajun Etouffee Nachos is what I made.

Cajun Etouffee Nachos recipe is layers of spicy goodness! 20 minute meal, appetizer or snack!

Full of shrimp, crawfish, sausage and all the familiar flavors of traditional etouffee, this is an easy appetizer to prepare. It’s ready in less than 20 minutes. Okra, shrimp, crawfish, and Johnsonville sausage are cooked in an etouffee seasoning then spread over tortilla chips. Top this mixture with cheese, fresh tomatoes, and green onions. If this weren’t enough everything gets a drizzle of the best Sriracha Comeback Sauce.

It’s the perfect solution for a hungry game-day crowd!

This is also a great dish if you have leftover shrimp, crawfish or sausage. Nachos, in general, are good for leftovers because you don’t have to have a lot of any one thing to make them. You can pretty much layer on whatever you have and whatever ingredients your family likes and, boom, dinner is served!

I think this recipe hits the mark on flavor and presentation! Cajun Etouffee Nachos are fully adaptable to your liking. If you don’t like okra substitute green bell peppers or omit it completely. Can’t find crawfish in your area? Add more shrimp and Johnsonville sausage!

I picked up Johnsonville Sausage at my local Walmart. I almost always have some on have for recipes like this or for the kids’ after-school snacks. There are so many ways to use it in recipes.

In fact, Johnsonville sausage is so convenient and uncomplicated to cook with it’s my go-to ingredient for parties.

  1. This dish sounds like an interesting fusion of flavors and cultures! I’m curious to see how the Cajun etouffee sauce is incorporated into nachos, and if it adds a new dimension of taste to this classic Tex-Mex dish.
