Loaded Potato Nachos

Author: Cooped Up Chick  //  Category: Appetizers, Main Course, March 2013


These were delicious. Confusing. But delicious.

Kind of a cross between nachos and a loaded baked potato. For those times when you just can’t decide.

The original poster just called them Potato Nachos and used already baked Baked potatoes but I started from raw (and renamed them to be more accurate to taste). I was afraid they would not be cooked all the way through so I parboiled them for about 8 minutes until they were fork tender.



Then I pretty much followed the recipe.


What you’ll need:


Potatoes (sliced as thin as you can)


Chili Powder

Nacho/loaded BP toppings.


Yeah. Pretty simple.

I used chopped jalapenos,



chopped tomatoes, sliced onions (that I warmed in a frying pan until tender but not “cooked”)



Add your potatoes to a bowl and drizzle with Olive Oil. Sprinkle with cumin and chili powder (to your personal tastes. For 3 medium sized potatoes I used 1/2tsp of each)



Now here is where you grill your potatoes. Not a necessary step if you don’t have an indoor grill pan but it adds a nice smokiness to the potatoes that I really enjoyed. I don’t have pics of this part as my grill pan was so hot I didn’t have time to grab the camera.

Arrange your potato slices on a cookie sheet with tin foil (just as you would do with Nacho chips)



Start adding your toppings. I added cooked bacon, the onions and some cheddar cheese



Add your chopped veggies and more cheese.



Bake at 400 for 6-10 minutes or until the cheese melts.



Remember my potatoes were ALMOST cooked. If you start with raw and don’t parboil or grill them then I would suggest cooking at 350 for 20-25 minutes withOUT the cheese (until potatoes are tender) and then add your cheese and broil for a minute or 2.


Top with sour cream, salsa, guacamole or whatever your heart desires.




love, peace and chicken grease,
