Whether you're not a meat lover or you're just looking to shake things up, shrimp makes one heck of a tasty nacho. Though you might not expect the sweet and briny shellfish to be compatible with cheese, mild Monterey Jack makes an excellent match. A piquant tomatillo-jalapeño-cilantro salsa keeps the flavors fresh, with half of it going into the oven with the chips, and the rest spooned over the top just before serving. This is one nacho plate that won't weigh you down.
