Irish Nachos

We really love nachos in our house. If I could eat them everyday, I would. But we don’t. And we probably shouldn’t. So, when I found this healthier version of nachos from Riddlelove (love her blog!) I knew that I had to make them. So, I did. And then I made them again. And again. And, yep, you guessed it. Again. And my plan is actually to make them tomorrow for dinner.

Irish Nachos 2-- Reini Days

This is one of those recipes that is more of an idea than a recipe. You pretty much can use whatever you have on hand. White potatoes. Sweet potatoes. Onions. Peppers. Chicken. Beef. Chicken sausage (my fav!). Whatever you have on hand is great.

Irish Nachos 3-- Reini Days

Irish Nachos

recipe slightly adapted from Riddlelove


  • 6 potatoes (I did half white, half sweet), sliced in either wedges or diced
  • 2-3 T oil (I used coconut, but olive would be good too)
  • 1-2 cups cooked chicken, sausage, or whatever meat you have on hand
  • 1 pepper, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • garlic, minced
  • other seasonings (I used salt, pepper, and a mix of other stuff)
  • cheese
  • sour cream
  • salsa
  • and whatever else you want for your nachos


  1. This time around I diced up my potatoes, but if you want to make them into wedges you can do that too. Heat a large skillet on medium heat with your oil and then add potatoes and stir. Add garlic and other seasonings and stir well. Cover and let potatoes cook for about 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so.
  2. When you have about 5 minutes left go ahead and add in your meat, pepper and onion. Saute with potatoes until all is heated through.
  3. Now you can either throw everything in a large baking dish and sprinkle cheese on top and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or if you want the easier method I just like to serve the nachos and then top with cheese, sour cream, and whatever other servings you want.
  4. Enjoy!
