Maryland Spicy Blue Crab Nachos

Spicy Maryland Blue Crab Nachos is one of those dishes that just make people happy. It’s festive and down right delicious. It’s moderately easy to prepare though you can take a few shortcuts if you are short on time. Just use your favorite freshly prepared store-bought salsa instead of the recipe below. Add Monterey Jack Cheese to the salsa to make it more cheesy and creamy throughout.

  • Preheat the oven on 350 F.
  • Spread the nachos on a sheet pan.
  • In a large bowl combine the Monterey Jack cheese, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, optional corn, garlic, lime juice, jalapeno, sugar, cumin, and a dash of salt and pepper.
  • Mix until well combined. You can taste the mixture and adjust it from here.
  • Sometimes I like to add more jalapeno if I am serving this with mixed drinks. Once you are satisfied with the flavor, gently fold in the crabmeat.
  • Smother the nachos with the mixture and then cover it with shredded Cheddar cheese.
  • Bake the nachos until the cheese melts, which should take just a few minutes.
  • Transfer the nachos to a decorative platter and serve with sour cream and guacamole.
  • 1 bag (9 ounces) of your Favorite Nachos
  • 1½ cup Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 3 medium tomatoes, cored and finely chopped, or canned diced tomatoes, drained
  • ¼ cup red onion, peeled and minced
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • optional 1 cup freshly grilled corn, cut from the cob (about 2 ears of corn)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons freshly chopped jalapeno pepper without seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon of sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • Dash of salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 pound Maryland Blue crabmeat (you don’t need the most expensive, just the freshest)
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, plus more if you like it extra cheesy
  • sour cream
  • guacamole
