Move aside, tortilla chips, because there’s another sheriff in town when it comes to nachos. As you’ll see once you try this recipe, fries make the perfect substitution to nest refried beans, gooey Cheddar cheese, salsa, sour cream, and whatever else you feel like piling on.

The Endless Options to Enjoy

When preparing the nacho fries, there are plenty of ways to customize them to your liking. For example, this recipe calls for ground beef, but you can switch it up and use a meat of your choice, such as shredded chicken or ground turkey. If you want to make the dish a bit leaner, ground turkey is an excellent alternative that will taste just as good, especially when blended with the different spices and ingredients.

Along with switching up the meat if you would like to do so, you can also add ingredients or take some away. It all depends on what you like and what you would normally add to your plate of traditional nachos.

How to Cut Potatoes for Fries

I&rsquove pulled the photos and brief rundown of how I like to cut potatoes for fries directly from my Wingstop Fries recipe.

If you cut almost to the bottom of the potato, it will hold together while you cut the remaining slices. Then you can easily finish cutting them all the way through.

Once you&rsquove cut the potato vertically, split the potato in half (2-3 layers per side) and place the middle of the potato face down. You can see the outside of the potato facing up in the photo above. Then it&rsquos as easy as slicing from one end to the other to create thin strips. And that&rsquos it&mdashfries.

Making Loaded Nacho Fries:

Step one: Start by lining your baking sheet with foil and place all french fries on it. This will save you a lot of trouble later when it comes time to wash your baking sheet. Now you can cook fries according to package directions.

Step two: Prepare your ground beef while your fries are in the oven. In a skillet cook and crumble your beef. Once fully cooked season with taco seasoning and mix in salsa.

Step three: Once your fries are done remove them from the oven and top with ground beef and shredded cheese. Place back into the oven until cheese has melted.

Step four: Before serving I topped mine with diced green onions, cilantro, diced tomato, and sour cream.

Nacho Fries

You have shown so much love to the Fiesta potatoes in the past, that today I’m sharing one of mine & Ahaan’s favorite: Taco’s Bell’s Nacho fries. We were so sad when taco bell took this off the menu, so I obviously started to make it at home and we love it so much. Nacho fries and fiesta potatoes have become such a staple in our house anytime we have out Taco Bell nights. It is such an easy snack, especially if you are making it with frozen fries.

Make sure to check out the notes section for baking option if you don’t have an air fryer. I’m linking my favorite air fryer if you are in search for one. I absolutely love love love my air fryer, it is my most used kitchen appliance after my stove. I highly recommend investing in one. I have stopped using my oven and frying most things!

Also if you love Taco Bell as much as we do check out some of my other at home Taco Bell recipes, which may even be better than taco bell!! (There I said it LOL): Mexican Pizza, Taco Bell Spicy Tostada, Taco Bell Quesadilla, Gordita Crunch, Baja Chalupas, Fiesta Breakfast Burrito.

I hope you all love this quick pasta dish as much as we do! If you try it don’t forget to tag me @zheelicious, I would love to see your creations.

Add cheese and cornstarch to large bowl. Toss to combine. Transfer to medium saucepan.

Add 1 cup evaporated milk and hot sauce. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with whisk until melted, bubbly, and thickened (about 5 minutes). Mixture will look thin and grainy at first but will thicken and come together after heating. Thin to desired consistency with additional evaporated milk. Serve immediately with fries, tortilla chips, burgers, or hot dogs.

To reheat the sauce, microwave it on high heat, stopping and stirring every 30 seconds until it's fully melted.
