Super Bowl XLVIII is almost here.


Whether you’re a Seattle Seahawks fan, Denver Broncos fan or just a fan of Super Bowl commercials, great food is essential to any Super Bowl party. One of my favorite snacks during the Super Bowl is nachos.

Below is my recipe for Shrimp Nachos. I’ve even included my recipes for homemade Guacamole, Ranch Dressing and Gochujang Aioli. They’re sure to spice up your festivities.
