These potato chip nachos are something I came up with a few years ago while under the influence (of lots of whiskey). I included the recipe in my Learn to Cook Book but figured it deserves a video. It’s a fun recipe!

I lovingly nicknamed them “Old White Lady Nachos” because I imagine that my dear, departed old white lady grandmother Hornsby would LOOOOVE these (and quite likely would have invented them herself if she’d had the chance). These nachos are barely even nachos. But they are good! Thick kettle chips, shredded pot roast, cheese and sweet pickled jalapeños all combine to make a very unhealthy and very delicious … meal? snack? What is this thing? WHAT HAVE I CREATED???

Use my recipe for a slow-cooker shredded beef taco filling from my Slow Cooker Recipes book or use your own pot roast. I’ve made this with all sorts of leftover roasted meat or chicken and guess what, y’all: Everything tastes awesome on kettle chips.

    lol Whilst under the influence (of lots of Brandy in my case), I came up with something similar… Potato crisps, grated cheese and 30 secs in the microwave. Must’ve been good because I finished all the cheese and are 3 full packets of crisps. Greek yogurt and a good guac take them to the next level!

    Great minds and all that…

      Haha! Agreed the creamy toppings are a wonderful touch, Sean!
