"What's not to like? Potatos, in any form, GREAT!...Nachos. Well, Yo no puedo tener suficiente!!

I made this recipe exatly as written and the result was very good.
I made a 2nd batch with a couple of personal changes.
First, I quadrupled the recipe. Next, I nixed the taco sauce. Instead, when they came out of the oven, I sprinkled my own homemade "hot" salsa on them.
Since I like "fire in my mexican dishes, I used diced Jalapeno AND Habanero peppers in place of the green chilies.
Oh yeah, one other thing....on top of the potatos, I put some finely cubed tomatoes!
Don't get me wrong. No matter how you make these "Nachos" they are delicious!!"
