Grilled Shrimp Wah Ha! Nachos

Used to work offshore and met one of my best buds there. We both were starting an unknown adventure being whisked off on a helicopter at the same time. Anyways, I went to visit my buddy in Austin, and he made a pico I thought was way too Cali. “Mangos in pico, get the hell outta here.” One taste shut me up... This is a recipe rob of what I remember from that life-changing day. Super easy and shrimp aren’t required but worth it.

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
