Potato Nachos

I love getting nachos at sporting events so I wanted to create a recipe like them. This is the result of my experiments and my family loves it!—Deb Helmer, Winfield, Kansas

    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!!
