Blue Ribbon Recipe

This would be a great appetizer at your next party or just to snack on while watching the big game! Instead of tortilla chips, fried potatoes are the basis for these nachos. They're topped with cheese, bacon, corned beef, salsa, jalapenos, sour cream, and more. Does it get any better than that?! You don't have to be Irish to enjoy these nachos.
