Loaded Potato Skin Nachos Recipe – These nachos will quickly become a favorite with the blend of loaded potato skins and spicy nachos all in one!
Oh friends, do I have a fun new recipe to share with you today!
These Loaded Potato Skin Nachos! Oh yes!
I love that they are a delicious blend of flavors that work perfectly together. And thankfully, everyone raves over these, too.
Making them does take a little bit more time than just using a bag of packaged tortilla chips for traditional nachos, but man are they worth it!
You make them by thinly slicing your cleaned potatoes into thin slices, drizzling on a little olive oil and sprinkling with salt and pepper.
You’ll then bake them for about 30 minutes until they are tender. While they are cooking, I like to go ahead and brown my ground beef so that as soon as the potatoes are cooked, I layer on cheddar cheese, my browned ground beef and pop them under the broiler for about 5 minutes until the cheeses have melted.
Then, I like to top them with pico de gallo and fresh cilantro and serve with sour cream, lime wedges and avocado.
Talk about yum!
These loaded potato skin nachos not only make a great appetizer for watching the game or tailgating, it also makes a mighty delicious meal!
