Hey Ethan.

Yes, you can use Express and Passport. Although, you could write helper functions to issue and verify JWTs using jsonwebtoken, since the Next.js app will manage most of the user authentication/authorization logic.

If you are using Now 2 to deploy, you could even avoid Express and Passport altogether.

But answering your question, yes you can implement what I did in the tutorial to work with Express.
