Make Potato Waffle Nachos Your Way

Add your own twist to this tasty waffle nacho recipe

  • Add in some chopped ham, crispy bacon or chorizo crumbs or spoon over homemade chilli con carne. And these waffles go great alongside some popcorn chicken!
  • Use whichever cheese you like or a combination of different cheeses. We love to use a sharp Cheddar cheese but it’s great with pepper jack or Monterey jack cheese too.
  • Scatter over sliced or diced peppers, chopped avocado, black beans and sweetcorn, or try garlicky fried mushrooms and a handful of chopped cilantro (coriander)
  • Serve with chunky guacamole or spicy salsa for dipping. Or Try serving with our delicious Sriracha Mayo Dip! Or a drizzle of your favourite hot sauce.
  • Hosting game-day, then make up a large platter (or several) for sharing.
