Easy Baked Potato Nachos

February 1, 2020

One of my favorite meals is nachos. Like, it would seriously would be at my last meal. Can anyone relate? Itโ€™s my big pleasure, Iโ€™d take it over chocolate any day! I had an idea to make it a little more nutritious, so I swapped out the nacho chips for baked potato! It’s so easy and probably one of the best things I’ve made for game day.

Ok let me be honest for a minute. I really stumbled upon this because we were really out of chips, but I had a serious craving for nachos ๐Ÿ™‚ I blame the pregnancy for that craving haha. But they really are just as good! The potatoes soak up all the flavor and itโ€™s super addicting.

And I apologize for some these photos, they were taken very quickly! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you like it!

Baked potato nachos are the perfect Sunday meal or for watching the big game.

Just a handful of ingredients
Slice and bake (or cook in a large pot) the potatoes first with the seasoning

I prefer to keep on the baked potato skins and plus, that’s the most nutritious part of the potato. But you can definitely take them off before you slice them.
