When you’re too busy (or don’t care) to cook

Irish Nachos

By Shannon DeJohn


Medium to large potatoes, washed – 1 per person

Green chili or black/refried beans, warmed

Cheddar cheese, grated

Green onion, chopped

Boil potatoes in large pot of water with three pinches of salt for approx. 45 minutes. Once you can stick a fork into the potato and remove easily, turn off burner and drain potatoes, letting them cool slightly. Slice into ¼” discs and arrange on large oven-safe serving dish. Layer with chili or beans, cheese, and green onion. Bake for 5-6 minutes at 350 degrees until cheese melts. Serve with olives, tomatoes, jalapenos, sour cream, etc.
