Servings 8


  • 2 Cups lump crab
  • 3 Tablespoons whipped cream cheese
  • 1 Cup Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar shredded
  • 1 Cup Tillamook Medium Cheddar shredded
  • 1-2 Tablespoons hot sauce depending on your taste, plus more for serving
  • 2 Scallions white and light green parts, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Thick tortilla Chips
  • Avocado diced
  • Tomato diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Pre heat your broiler.
  • Spread a layer of tortilla chips out on a sheet pan and prepare your toppings.
  • In a bowl, mix the cream cheese with the hot sauce and a pinch of salt and pepper. Gently add the crab to the mixture, trying not to break the lumps up too much.
  • In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the white parts of the scallion to the pan and stir until slightly softened; about 1 minute. Add the crab mixture and stir, still trying not to break the crab up too much, until warmed through; about 5 minutes.
  • Spread the crab mixture evenly over the tortilla chips and then top with the Tillamook cheddar. Broil the nachos until cheese is melted and bubbly, being careful not to let them burn; 3-5 minutes.
  • Top the nachos with avocado, tomatoes, the green parts of the scallions and more hot sauce.
  • Enjoy!
