Chicken and Shrimp Fajita Nachos are delicious when layered with all the good stuff chicken, shrimp, peppers, onions, and cheese. Nachos are perfect for leftovers and feeding a crowd!

On a sheet pan, I topped crispy tortilla chips with fajita seasoned chicken, shrimp, peppers, onions, cheese., and Sriracha. After heating it through, I garnished it with green onion slices and served it with sour cream, avocado, and tomato. Yum!

Nachos are my go-to on a busy weeknight when I don’t really have time to cook, but I want something good. If I plan ahead, I’ll cook extra protein earlier in the week to layer on chips. If I don’t, chicken and shrimp take just a few minutes to saute so no worries either way.

Nachos are also good if you don’t have a lot of anything because when it’s all put together there’s enough for a meal. (Which also makes them inexpensive to make too!) Then, instead of a scrawny meal, my family thinks I’m a genius with a beautiful large nacho presentation at the table for them.

As well, you can personalize this recipe with your favorite. I do not like green bell peppers, but if you do by all means add them! You can literally add whatever you want. Here are some of our favorite nacho toppings:

  • corn
  • avocado
  • sour cream
  • chickpeas
  • jalapenos
  • green onion
  • black beans
  • thinly sliced radishes
  • tomatoes
  • cheese – Whatever type you have.
  • onions
  • peppers
  • cauliflower – I know it’s odd but good.
  • lime juice
  • ground beef
  • steak
  • chicken
  • pork tenderloin or loin

You can use my simple Fajita Seasoning recipe to control the salt. I find seasoning mixes are usually too salty for my liking.

HOW LONG TO BAKE THE NACHOS

The nachos will be ready once the cheese is melted. Typically, it takes mine about 10 minutes. However, cook time depends on how many toppings you have. Watch the chips carefully to avoid over-cooking them. Tortilla chips can burn fairly easily. They’re ready as soon as they start to brown.
