South of the border meets the Emerald Isle

We snagged this recipe for Irish nachos from Rock & Reilly's Irish Whiskey Pub in Los Angeles. It's the perfect junk food for padding out/soaking up all that we plan to imbibe on that sacred day of drinking with friends. And you'll want friends around for these nachos, the recipe yield A LOT of Irish cheddar-covered chips.

The nachos call for queso sauce (we heard them), but we're pretty averse to the stuff in the jar. Instead, check out our recipe for authentic chile con queso and dig in knowing you did everything in your power to make these St. Patty's day nachos extra-Irish.

3 cups roasted corn kernels
1 cup pickles, diced

  3. On a large ovenproof plate, alternate layers of sliced potato and tortilla chips with the shredded cheddar, leaving just enough cheese to top the nachos.
  4. Top the layered tortilla chips and potatoes with bell peppers, corn and pickles, then drizzle with queso dip to your liking.
  5. Place the nachos under a broiler for about 2-3 minutes until the top is bubbly, then serve hot with your favorite St. Patrick's day beer.
