Potato Nachos

If you haven’t tried Potato Nachos, you are missing out! Don’t get me wrong. I love regular nachos, but sometimes I like to change things up. They are a little more effort to make, but the end result is soooo worth it.

It’s definitely not diet food since it’s full of carbs, but it’s so filling and delicious. I practically ate this whole pan myself. And I don’t feel one bit guilty.

Instead of salsa, I used taco sauce. I also added green olives (my fave!), green onions and lots of melted cheddar cheese. 

I didn’t bother to peel the potatoes either. I like the look of them with the skin on better.

How to Make Potato Nachos

Start by preheating your broiler to high. 

Place the potato slices in a single layer on baking sheets. Season with salt. 

Broil 4 inches from the heat for about 4 minutes, or until browned. Flip the potatoes and broil on the other side, about 4 minutes.

Drizzle the taco sauce over the potatoes. Sprinkle on the green onions, green olives and cheddar cheese. Broil about 2 minutes more or until cheese melts. Serve hot.

Every time I make this recipe it never lasts long. It’s the first appetizer to go. I guess that is a good sign that people love the recipe and I hope you do too.

Though I love the toppings, my favourite part is the salty potatoes. I could eat them plain, but they taste even better with the all the toppings.

If you aren’t a fan of the toppings I’m using in this recipe, that’s ok. Just substitute toppings you like. Easy peasy.
