These Skillet Loaded Taco Potato Chip Nachos were created in partnership with Frito-Lay. As always, all opinions and the recipe are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that support Shared Appetite!
I don’t know about you, but I need something new to look forward to now. Thankfully, it’s the best time of year for game day eats. I’m not really a big football fan, but I’m 100% a HUGE game day food fan. That one magical day a year is fast approaching… Super Bowl LII… and I’m so on board with celebrating the great American pastime of football with a legit menu of mouthwatering food. This year I’m bringing these Skillet Loaded Taco Potato Chip Nachos. Just like nachos, but made with the perfectly salty and crunchy LAY’S® Classic Potato Chips. Oh heck yes.
More importantly, I enjoy the commercials and I am all about the snacks.
All. The. Snacks.
Seriously, these two snacks rarely make it long in our house. Asheley and I both love them, and Olivia is definitely
walking running in our footsteps.
The flavor options for these Skillet Loaded Taco Potato Chip Nachos are endless. I’m already thinking up Korean pork and Buffalo Chicken variations, but for our game day watch party, I wanted to keep the flavors iconic for these potato chip nachos: Loaded Tacos!
- Layer taco beef over a generous layer of crispy LAY’S® Classic Potato Chips
- Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese over the beef
- Top with Pickled Jalapeños and Easy Pickled Onions (these little beauties are SO simple to whip up and taste SO ridiculously good on nachos)
- Add more cheese
- Get everything nice and toasty in the oven, then smother in sour cream, pico de gallo, and ALL THE GUAC
- Devour with your closest friends
Do yourself a favor and make these Skillet Loaded Nacho Potato Chip Nachos for your next game day celebration. They come together in under 25 minutes and you’ll be crowned the new queen/king of entertaining. I promise.
Oh, and bonus tip: I always shred cheese for nachos myself. Never get the pre-shredded stuff, as it never seems to melt as well as when you spend the extra two minutes to shred the cheese yourself.
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Brown ground beef until fully cooked. Add taco seasoning and water and cook until water and thickens to a sauce.
- In a large cast iron skillet (or other baking dish) layer potato chips, taco beef, half of the cheddar cheese, pickled onions, pickled jalapenos, and other half of cheddar cheese. Bake for 5-7 minutes, until cheese if bubbly and fully melted. Serve with sour cream, pico de gallo, and guacamole.
