Surf Nacho Boards

This is a fun twist on nachos.  I tried to position the shrimp on top so that they sort of looked like surfers on surf boards.  This was for a Cruise Ship theme party, so I'm not quite as crazy as that sounds!

Tortilla chips
1 cup refried beans
1 cup monterey jack cheese
1 jalapeƱo, finely chopped
1/2 of a red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tomato, finely chopped
3 tbsp lime juice
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 cup medium sized shrimp, cooked
Salt and pepper to taste
Make a salsa of the jalapeno, onion, tomato, garlic and cilantro.  Season with lime juice and salt and pepper. Arrange tortilla chips on a baking sheet and top with the salsa, then sprinkle generously with monterey jack cheese.  Press one shrimp into the bean/cheese mixture so that it stands.
Bake in the oven at 350 until the cheese is melted. Season with salt and pepper again, if necessary, and serve when hot.  Surf's up!
