My kids absolutely LOVE nachos.  They will eat pretty much anything on a chip covered in cheese and salsa.  They ask for nachos for dinner ALL the time.  But chips…for dinner…I don’t think so.

Apparently, I’m the ONLY mom that feels that way, because according to my kids, they always have nachos for dinner at their friends’ houses.

And then comes the…”Why do you have to make fancy food, can’t we  just have kid food?”

I was not aware that grilled salmon or chicken was “fancy”, but hey  what do I know.

I thought about using tortillas  in place of the chips, but that is basically an unwrapped  burrito and would NOT pass the kid test.

That’s when I remembered this post for Irish Nachos from the lovely Marla Meridith.

Potatoes would be perfect with buffalo chicken and some blue cheese.


Buffalo Chicken Nachos


  • 4 medium Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 chicken breasts {baked and shredded}
  • 1/ 2 cup of shredded pepper jack or cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup of crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 stalks of celery chopped
  • 2 tbsp diced chives {optional}
  • Franks Hot Sauce


  • pre-heat the oven to 400
  • slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch rounds
  • rinse and pat dry
  • toss in olive oil with the salt and pepper
  • line a deep skillet or dutch oven with the potatoes {overlapping}
  • bake for 40 minutes
  • while the potatoes are cooking, toss the shredded chicken in hot sauce {amount will depend on how spicy you want the chicken - I used 1/4 cup}
  • once the potatoes have cooked, top with the chicken, celery,and both cheeses
  • return to the oven until the cheese has melted {7 - 10 minutes}
  • top with the chives
  • and serve the extra hot sauce and blue cheese at the table
