Microwaved Or Baked Potato Nachos

If you love potatoes and nachos then you need to try this recipe. Along with the potatoes are all your favorite nacho toppings like onion, bacon, jalapeño peppers, cheese, seasonings and topped with sour cream, optional. I made this in the microwave and it was cooked in 15 minutes or you can bake it in the oven in about 50-60 minutes.

Spray a 2 quart baking dish with cooking oil.

Peel and slice the potatoes then place them

into a large bowl. Add the oil and toss

well coating all of the potatoes.

Add the onion, cumin, chili powder, salt, jalapeño

slices and bacon then toss to combine thoroughly.

Pour the potatoes into the prepared dish,

cover and microwave for 15 minutes or until

the potatoes are tender. If baking, cover and

bake in a preheated 350º oven for 50-60

minutes or until potatoes are cooked through.

Remove from the microwave or oven and

add the shredded cheese. Place the lid

on until the cheese melts. Remove

the lid and top with green onion

and sour cream, optional.

  1. This looks so good! If time were not an issue, I always prefer to oven bake things than use the microwave. But it’s nice that you’ve provided two options for users to try!

    • Now that surprises me! My husbands Aunt was a nun at a convent and she made delicious homemade bread for decades and she was nearly blind. They even sold the bread she made. Thank you for the nice comment Michael!

      • I am not wondering about, Diane! The nuns here are all grown up in the monasteries, and had learned cooking and baking by their former nuns. The manager of the boarding school – also a cleric – wanted to save money too. 😉 xx

  2. That first picture – wow. They look so good. They remind me of a less-spicy version my mom called “company potatoes” which were sliced potatoes with onions and breadcrumbs on top which were baked. I wish she had tossed some of this spice in there!
