Idaho nachos


One pound of hamburger meat,
One tablespoon of taco seasoning.

Put both in frying pan, brown and drain.


4 cups of cheese of your choice (or cheese substitute),
1 can of Mild Rotel.

Put cheese in microwave-safe bowl, drain can of Rotel and dump on top of cheese. Nuke until melted.

Now, break out the deep-fryer and make yourself a plate-full of waffle-cut french fries. I suppose any kind of french fry will work, but the waffle-cut kind of keep with the whole “nacho” thing.

Mix your taco meat and your melted cheese goodness together and pour over your plate of fries.

Top with chopped tomatoes, chopped onions and peppers to taste.

Voila! Idaho nachos.


Great Horned Toads!
Off to see the wizard!

  1. Aight, Dawg, that’s it. I’m officially going to try out one of your recipes. I’ve been meaning to for awhile, but I’ve always had to read the Files at work.

    Now I’ve got the Web at home, and it’s LawDog Cuisine here soon.

    As a sidenote, you should consider adding that funky tag line thingy to your blog (like Tam has on hers) so that one could pull up LawDog’s Kitchen in one swift click.

    Just a thought.


  2. You went to a gun show and this is what you brought back? A recipe for imitation nachos?

  3. I’m not saying it wouldn’t be good.

    I’m not saying that I wouldn’t eat it.

    But I wouldn’t brag about it.

  4. Y’all got this real fetish for Rotel… whatever that is. I don’t think they sell it this far north, though.

  5. I’d eat it.

    Although I’d just use real tomatoes and chili peppers instead of the rotel.

  6. Do not drain the can of Rotel! Repeat: do not drain the can of Rotel!!

  7. That ain’t right. Half the state of Texas is now pissed off & they’re not quite sure why. Do you have to call ’em nachos?

  8. French fries? I guess you can do them with french fries. We usually do them with roasted potato skins with a goodly bit of potato still on them here in Idaho 😀

  9. Lawmom is right – if you drain the tomatos, the cheese/tomato mix will be a clumpy, gloppy mess.

    They do sell rotel up here, but you have to look on the highest or lowest shelf in the ethnic food aisle to find them in a regular supermarket.

  10. Dawg just doesn’t know how to spell. It isn’t nachos, it’s “not yo’s” as in MINE~! Yum.
    I know, I know. ‘Orrible, but it’s been a bad day all around.

  11. Ethnic, LOL… We have a similar dish, imagine fries, brown gravy, and cheese curds. I don’t know how you could make a meal any less healthy, or any tastier. Mmm, poutine.
