Your taste buds will be dancing a jig after just one delicious nibble of Irish Corned Beef Nachos. Instead of a traditional tortilla chip base, this Emerald Isle-inspired appetizer is built upon a foundation of potatoes – just like the Mother land herself!
Potato rounds have been baked at a high temperature to be crispy on the exterior with a pillow-like soft interior. Between the strata of spuds and gobs of ooey-gooey sharp cheddar cheese and shredded corned beef, the amazing combination of flavors will shamrock your world! Go ahead and kick up your heels and drizzle your favorite creamy dressing on top – try Original Thousand Island dressing!
Corned beef, like potatoes, is one of those foods that pops to mind whenever Ireland is mentioned. It’s a salt-brined brisket that has been boiled and then hunked up, chopped, sliced or shredded. In the U.S., the Reuben sandwich is one of the most familiar ways we eat this old-school meat preparation today… these potato nachos may just change that! While it’s not extremely difficult to make your own corned beef by slow-cooking in the oven or Crock Pot, I highly recommend picking it up from the deli section of your market for convenience and practicality.
Set up a dart table, pop open a six pack of stout, pull a batch of Irish Corned Beef Nachos out of the oven and watch how quickly your friends pop over to enjoy an impromptu pub party. It’s a festive and flavorful way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or any day!
