Nachos

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons ketchup

1 tablespoon soy sauce

5 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked, chopped

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat gas grill to medium-high heat or charcoal grill until coals are ash white. Place 10-inch cast iron skillet on grill and close lid. Heat oven to 400°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine garlic salt, pepper, ginger and cayenne in small bowl. 

  3. STEP 3

    Arrange wonton wrappers on two large baking sheets (they can be touching). Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with spice mixture. Bake 5-6 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Whisk together mayonnaise, rice vinegar and sugar in small bowl. Cover; refrigerate. 

  5. STEP 5

    Whisk together honey, ketchup, soy sauce and Worcestershire in small bowl. Pour mixture into hot cast iron skillet; cook 1-2 minutes or until thick and most of the moisture has evaporated. Add shrimp; cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked through. Pour shrimp and sauce into small bowl, scraping as much out of the pan as you can. Add bacon; stir. Cover with aluminum foil; set aside.

  6. STEP 6

    Arrange half of chips (baked wonton wrappers) on bottom of skillet; top with half of Deli American and half of shrimp mixture. Close lid of grill; cook 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Repeat layers with remaining chips, cheese and shrimp mixture. Close lid; cook 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from heat.

  7. STEP 7

    Drizzle with mayonnaise mixture. Sprinkle with sliced green onions, sesame seeds and chili peppers. Serve immediately.

Tip #1

This recipe can be made using a disposable aluminum pan. If using a disposable pan, do not preheat on grill. Combine honey, ketchup, soy sauce and Worcestershire in pan and place directly on hot grill. Continue preparing as directed.

Tip #2

This recipe can also easily be made inside on the stovetop, utilizing the oven to melt the cheese.
