Grilled Lobster Nachos with Queso Sauce

These are the nachos of champions. Grilled Lobster Nachos smothered with a home made old bay seasoned queso sauce.

I’m missing these in my life already and can’t wait for the next lobster sale to make them!

The other week I came across and insane lobster tail sale that I could not refuse. My wife had the amazing idea of turning them into lobster nachos.

Who am I to turn her down? Happy wife, happy life.

So I decided to make up a queso sauce that would compliment the lobster nachos based off my hatch pepper queso dip recipe.

Then added a little smoked paprika along with some old bay seasoning. This queso, along with the buttery grilled lobster tails are so awesome.

The queso can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for a couple days, then reheat it on your side burner while the lobster is cooking up.

Once the lobster tails are done, cut them up, and toss it all in a skillet with chips. Add some fresh grated cheese, some black beans and your other favorite toppings.

Winner winner, lobster dinner!
