How to make it
- In large skillet, melt butter and olive oil. Add scallions, mushrooms, bell pepper and shrimp. Hit with a dash of lemon juice.
- Add cumin, chili pepper, garlic and onion powders and salt and pepper and toss while cooking, cooking until shrimp is pink and veggies are tender.
- Layer chips on serving plate and top with shredded cheese.
- When shrimp/veggie mixture is done, immediately put on top of cheese(using a slotted spoon, if needed, depending on moisture content). This will partially melt the cheese, and it's how I recommend doing it...you don't really want to bake these to melt the cheese.
- Top with green olives, sour cream and cilantro or parsley

Keni you have made a new hit by mixing it up a bit with the shrimp as a meat replacement.This pescatarian style recipe is wonderful I love those pimento stuffed olives too.
