Do Not Make These Homemade Irish Nachos If You’Re Trying To Lose Weight

The previous occasions when I had Irish nachos, they were deep fried. There is no way to make this dish healthy but baking these Irish nachos will help.

The key to making this recipe work is getting the potatoes crispy.  By coating these with oil and spices, baking them until they are golden brown, a crispy bed of potatoes will support the rest of the ingredients.

The homemade ingredients for Irish nachos are surprisingly basic but are right off the bar food menu. We covered ours with Velveeta cheese, cheddar, bacon, green onion, pork sausage, sour cream, and chives. You can also add shredded pull pork, ground beef or whatever meat you like. Did I mention the Guinness beer?
