Crispy baked potatoes get topped with hummus, beans, chicken, veggies, and cheese to make loaded Irish Nachos! Snacking will never be the same!
Back in the day when my metabolism was on fire, I would go to the gym, run 4 or 5 miles on the treadmill then go home and make a giant tray of loaded nachos. Can you say counterproductive? It’s like my depleted body needed salty tortilla chips and gooey, melted cheese to refuel itself!
One look at this Bruschetta Dip or these Cheese Filled Egg Rolls and you will see I love my hot, melted cheese! But the truth is you don’t always need a cheese-filled appetizer to please a crowd! But what you do need is something that tastes amazing!
These loaded Irish Nachos certainly beat any of my past nacho creations! These nachos are a little different in terms of ingredients, plus they are so much better for you! Irish nachos start with thinly sliced potatoes that are lightly seasoned and then baked until crisp. I arranged my baked potato slices in a deep cast iron skillet (although a baking sheet or serving plate would work as well). I then combined Sabra’s Classic Hummus with one chipotle pepper and spread this mixture on my potatoes. Black beans, rotisserie chicken are piled on next along with crumbled Queso Blanco cheese and a handful of mixed greens get piled in the center. Sabra’s Farmers Ranch Greek Yogurt Dip and guacamole are served on the side.
I wish you could reach in and taste these Irish nachos because me just sitting here describing them to you does not do them justice. The kicked up hummus almost melts onto the warm potatoes while the creamy cheese and crisp lettuce cool it all down. The ranch yogurt dip and the guacamole add a nice blend of seasoning and taste to each bite! These Irish nachos are more like a meal than a snack! Game day food has just been taken to a whole new level!
