Irish Nachos

Updated on August 30, 2016

The Day I Found Irish Nachos

While out with my sister and mother in law one day we decided to stop into Don Cherry's Sport's Grill in Bradford, Ontario, and have a beer after shopping. We weren't really all that hungry but we wanted something to nibble on. When looking at the menu I spotted something I'd never heard of before. Pointing at the menu I said, "Look at this, Irish nachos, are you serious? I always thought that nachos were Mexican."

I am a huge fan of nachos and these really piqued my interest, so we all decided that we'd share a plate of these.

When the waitress brought our order I was a bit taken back as I didn't read the entire description of what exactly Irish Nachos were. There sitting on a platter were not tortilla chips but potato chips. Well that makes sense ... Irish = Potatoes. The potato chips were smothered in cheese, green onions and topped with bacon. They came with two sides of sour cream and mayonnaise mixed with chipolata sauce. I asked if they had any salsa and the waitress brought a third side for us. Who eats nachos without salsa right?

We all dug in and enjoyed the Irish nachos so much that I had to make them at home. The only difference with mine are that I didn't use Monterey Jack cheese mixed with cheddar.


Don't these look great!

Instructions on how to make Irish Nachos

  1. Start by frying 3/4 of a pound of sliced bacon. You don't want to cook it to where it is crispy as it will crisp up when it goes into the oven and under the broiler.
  2. While the bacon is frying grate the cheese, and chop the green onions.
  3. Once the bacon is cooked remove it from the pan and drain on paper towels.
  4. Preheat the oven on broil and place the oven rack on the second level from the top.
  5. Spray a large pizza pan or oven safe dish with cooking spray.
  6. The bacon should now be cool. Cut the bacon strips into one inch pieces.
  7. On the pan carefully place and spread out the contents of the two bags of chips. If you have a smaller pan than what I used then follow these instructions layering as you go. Top the chips with the shredded cheese saving a bit for the very top. Next spread your chopped onions, then the bacon. Top with the rest of the cheese.
  8. Place in the oven and broil for about 8 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted.
  9. To make the chilpotle side sauce simply add the mayo to a small bowl and add and stir in the salsa chilpotle sauce.
  10. ENJOY!

      When I update a hub I will sometimes share it. I think some of the pubs in Boston serve Irish Nachos except they're made with potato wedges rather than the potato chips. Hope that you're able to find them and enjoy them.

      Have a good weekend.

      Kathryn 3 years ago from Manchester, Connecticut

      This was on my feed~ did you share your own hub? I didn't even know that was possible! Anyway, I'm glad I saw this, because I have never heard of Irish Nachos. So cool! I am being very good right now, but maybe sometime I will 1) make this when the main part of my "diet" is over, or 2) see if they have it at an Irish pub in Boston. It would be pretty awesome to eat out with Andy again sometime, and I know he would like the idea.

      Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe with us, and have a fantastic day!

      Interesting, but my variation (as a vegetarian) would be to eliminate the bacon...and then, save for the potato chips, they wouldn't be much different than regular nachos....

      I love Irish Nachos... I live in Chicago with a huge Irish heritage here I never heard of them. I was actually in Charleston South Carolina at a restaurant called Tommy Condons when I first had them. I was looking over the menu when the food arrived at a neighboring table and one of the plates piled a mile high looked so good that asked about it. Turned out to be the Irish Nachos made from freshly cut Idaho potatoes, and covered with cheddar, ranch, bacon, jalepenos, tomato's and black olives... I'm getting hungry just thinking about them now. I think I'm going to go get the supplies and try your recipe today... Thanks for the hub.

    • sholland10 profile image

      Susan Holland 4 years ago from Southwest Missouri

      These look and sound delicious. Using the kettle chips makes sense because they are a stronger, crunchier chip. I am glad you stated not to fry the bacon to be crispy or mine would be burnt after baking.

      As always, AWESOME!! Votes and shares! :-)

      I made a little Mexican fiesta but I threw these in - while I was cooking them I looked at the new cheese - it's montery jack with red and green chilis in it:) not mozzarella! I guess since its white I just chose to think it was mozzarella.

      Everyone LOVED these - Kettle cooked chips are Maddy's favorite!

      And to think that most people thought that everything possible with potatoes was already done. Well, we do have a similar thing here at Chili's chain restaurants, it's french fries smothered in cheese, topped with bacon and jalepenos and it looks like nachos. They call it Texas cheese fries. It's way yummy but packs a powerful amount of calories.

      I am so hungry right now - this did not help! lol

      I have never heard of these and yeah - can't wait to give them a try! I was shopping today and found some mozzerella cheese flavored with jalapenos. I bought some thinking they would be great on nachos - it's one of my favorite things to cook!

      I suspected it all along. A small colony of Irish lost somewhere in Mexico. This is proof. The real name is Not yos... :))...

      This is an interesting recipe. And, I imagine that the chips are pretty crunchy since it doesn't call for salsa as a cooking ingredient. I'd like to try this.

      Nachos caught my eye, then I saw the word Irish. You drew me in and kept me interested. Good job

      LOL....there is a name for this? I have made these for years, but only when I don't have any nachos in the house. Too funny! Great recipe, Susan, and a greater laugh. There really is a name for this! Now I have to tell Bev, who laughs at me every time I make these.
