These Potato Nachos are crispy, flavorful potatoes loaded with taco sauce, green olives, green onions and lots of melty cheddar cheese. The perfect appetizer!
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.
