  1. The first thing we want to do is slice our russet potatoes with the skin on- on a mandolin slicer on the number 3. You want them thicker than standard potato chips because we are loading them with goodies.
  2. Place your sliced potatoes in a bowl and fill with cold water and ice. The ice and cold water makes the chips crispy.
  3. Now we need to start making our cheese sauce. Shred your cheeses and set aside. Turn your oven on to 350.
  4. In a medium saucepan on med low heat- add your 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream. Now add all of your cheeses except the 1/4 cup cheddar cheese.Stir well while the cheese is melting. Add your cream a little at a time- till you reach your cheese consistency- thick creamy cheese sauce. Add 1/2 of your pico de gallo in the cheese sauce. Set aside till chips are ready.
  5. Start heating vegetable oil in a big saucepan- or use your fryer and heat till hot. Drain your potatoes that have been soaking in the water real good. Start frying your potato chips in batches till all done and lightly browned.Place the cooked chips on a paper towel till all done.
  6. In a cast iron skillet- layer a round of chips on the bottom of the pan. Pour some of your cheese sauce over the chips, Sprinkle some of the cheddar cheese over the cheese sauce.Now sprinkle with bacon and green onions.and continue this repetition till all your chips are gone.On the top sprinkle the remainder of your pico de gallo.
  7. Place your cast iron skillet in the oven and heat till bubbly. Serve your hot TGI fridays loaded skillet nachos.

This dish looks really good. I think I will take the time to make my own chips soon - and I must get a madolin.

You sure do. Target has them for 20.00 so they are inexpensive. Just be careful when you use one and make sure you use the guard. These chips are a little thicker like homemade tortilla chips. They are this way so that you can load them with goodness.. :)
