Step 1

In a bowl, combine the oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, salt and garlic. Toss with the shrimp; let rest for 15 minutes. Remove shrimp from the marinade. Sauté in a skillet to cook through, about 2 minutes per side. Halve the shrimp lengthwise and set aside, covered, in the refrigerator.

Assemble the nachos in batches: Arrange the tortilla chips on baking sheets; place a shrimp half, cut-side down, on each chip. Top each with 1 teaspoon of guacamole; sprinkle with tomato and cheese, then top with a jalapeño slice. Sprinkle with parsley.

Just before serving, broil the nachos to melt the cheese, about 1 minute. Serve immediately.
