Ingredients

  • 2-4 naan can also use soft tortillas, pitas, lavash, or any type of flatbread
  • 8-10 frozen shrimp thawed, deveined, shells and tails removed (purchase “fully cooked” for quicker prep)
  • 1 can of Old El Paso mild green chiles
  • 4-8 slices fontina
  • ½ cup pesto sauce
  • 1 T. red chile powder
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • 1 T. butter or olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Prepare the naan. Spoon ¼ cup of pesto onto each bread and spread evenly.
  • Top pesto with Old El Paso green chiles and cheese slices.
  • Heat butter or oil over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Once butter is melted, add shrimp, red chile powder, and oregano.
  • Cook shrimp, stirring occasionally, until pink and firm. If you are using cooked shrimp, cook until heated through.
  • While the shrimp is cooking, place prepared naan breads directly on the oven rack for 4-8 minutes. Length of time will depend upon the type of bread. Cook until cheese is melted and bread is crisp on the bottom.
  • Remove naan from the oven and place on serving plate.
  • Top with cooked shrimp and extra green chiles.
