Irish Nachos are the perfect appetizer for St. Patrick’s Day. Kettle potato chips are loaded with two cheeses, bacon, tomatoes, sour cream, and green onions. These nachos are sure to put a jig in your step and a smile on your face.
Ingredients for Irish Nachos
I used the following ingredients for this fun appetizer: Kettle Potato Chips, Dubliner cheese, Cheddar cheese, bacon, tomatoes, sour cream, and green onions. The reason that I used kettle chips was that they tend to be more substantial than regular potato chips.
Making the Irish Nachos
The Irish Nachos took minutes to put together. I started by adding the potato chips to an oven-safe dish. Then, I sprinkled on shredded Dubliner cheese and shredded Cheddar cheese.
Next, I popped the nachos in a preheated 375° F oven for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, the cheese had melted and was bubbly. I removed the nachos from the oven and sprinkled on some crumbled bacon and diced tomatoes. I topped the nachos with some sour cream, and finished them off with a sprinkling of sliced green onion tops.
The Irish Nachos were amazing. Each bite was full of cheesy goodness. Yum!
