Louisiana seafood is the best from our Louisiana crawfish to crabmeat. If you don’t have fresh crabmeat available, my second choice is the pasteurized crabmeat you find in a can. Of course, you can always use snow crab, king crab or imitation crabmeat. With the incredible southwestern crab mixture smothered with melted cheese, you will still have the best nachos recipe!
