Irish Nachos with Guacamole

I am fairly confident that you all know my obsession with guacamole by this point in time. I could, and would, eat it everyday for every meal and I am certain that I would never tire of this. I am always on the lookout for new ideas that involved my beloved guacamole and this past week my boyfriend suggested that I make Irish Nachos. I have no idea where he came up with this idea – but whoever inspired it is a genius. And I love them.

They are pretty much like regular nachos but so much better because instead of using chips, you use thin slices of potatoes and then pile on the other ingredients. They are down right delicious and a total crowd pleaser… not to mention extremely budget friendly.

You start with a big plate of thinly sliced roasted potatoes

Next, pile on some sauteed vegetables…

Then, layer on some sauteed meat. I used ground turkey but you really could use any kind of meat you prefer. It would be great with ground beef, chicken, lamb or even shredded beef, pork… whatever!! It’s all going to be delicious.

Add on a big handful of cheese and then stick it back into the oven to melt it over the nachos.

Once its out of the oven for the final time, add the salsa and of course some Guacamole and call it a meal!

  • 1 yellow onion sliced
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 3 tsp garlic salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • In a tart pan with a removable center, line the sliced potatoes in circles, making sure to cover as much as the bottom of the pan as possible. Season with salt, pepper, 1 tsp paprika and garlic salt and drizzle with olive oil and bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. Once baked, remove from the oven and set aside.
  • In a medium sized skillet drizzle olive oil to coat the pan and bring to medium high heat. Add the peppers and the onions and saute for 5 minutes. Transfer vegetable mixture on top of potatoes. Next add the ground turkey and remaining 1 tsp of paprika to the same skillet and saute until the turkey is fully cooked. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the turkey mixture on top of the vegetables and then top with cheddar cheese.
  • Put the pan back into the oven for 7 minutes until the cheese has melted.
  • Once removed from the oven, top with Guacamole and Salsa and serve immediately.

    These are not Irish Nachos by any means! How do you get Irish out of ground turkey, guacamole, and bell peppers.

    This does look and sound great but they are NOT Irish Nachos.

      Hi John! Sorry you feel so strongly that these aren’t Irish Nachos. I was merely referring to the fact that I am using potatoes (which is an Irish staple) as the base instead of chips. Just a fun little treat.

    Love your Irish nachos; I’ve made them several times, adjusting the few ingredients to fit my hubby’s food allergies. I sub Anaheim pepper for the onion, chicken for the turkey and Daiya for the cow cheese… and omit the salsa. I also increased the oven temp to get crispier potatoes. But the whole reason from my comment today is, when I go to your site from my Android phone, the background is dark blue with black text and I cannot read the recipe, so I had to print it out. Just thought you’d like to know, perhaps you can look into fixing it.
