Gringo Nachos

Unlike regular nachos, these are served as an entree. Melty cheese covers roasted potatoes, bacon and caramelized onions. The amounts are as desired.

Gringo Nachos


  • Red potatoes
  • Bacon, sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • Large yellow onions
  • Garlic powder
  • Cheddar cheese, grated

  1. Roast red potatoes, then cube and sauté with bacon.
  2. Meanwhile, caramelize onions. Halve and slice onions. Coat 12-inch skillet with cooking spray. Over medium heat, cook onions in oil for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until soft and golden. Stir in garlic powder, per taste.
  3. Place potatoes on a rimmed cookie sheet.
  4. Add caramelized onions on top of potatoes.
  5. Sprinkle lots of grated cheddar cheese over the top.
  6. Bake for 5 minutes at 350 degrees F or just until the cheese is melted.
