What are Irish nachos?

I overheard someone last night say, "yeah, and we also had some Irish nachos so I'm ok." I'm making the bold assumption that they are a food item.

    Hi,

    I'm from Ireland and NO-ONE here eats 'Irish Nachos', however several Irish bars around the world have branded their nacho servings as 'Irish Nachos' - perhaps to sell more Nachos...

    The Ingredients are

    Waffle-cut french fried potatoes

    Shredded jack and cheddar cheese

    Chopped green onions

    Chopped canned black olives

    Sour cream

    Salsa

    And the Recipe is as follows..

    Top fries with onions and olives, cover with cheese and bake until it melts. Serve with sour cream and a nice fresh salsa.

    Variations: The ingredients above are a bare minimum. Classic additions include chopped tomato, sliced pepperoncini, and pickled jalapeños. Some folks like guacamole.

    If you like meat, consider crumbled bacon, sliced pepperoni, or perhaps chili.

    Hope this helps - it sounds yummy :)

    "Irish Nachos

    Not, I think, a traditional Irish recipe. Great bar food or a meal in itself. Don't confuse with the similar dish made from fried potato skins.

    Irish means potatoes. Irish nachos are just like regular nachos with potato skins or fries replacing the tortilla chip. Our favorite recipe is to make tater tots. On top of the tots, layer cheddar and pepper jack cheeses and jalepeno slices. Put under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly. Now add chopped onions, finely chopped black olives, sour cream and guacamole. Now, you've made me hungry!

    I'm offended! I'm reporting you! Irish nachos, jeez whiz! Just kidding. Yeah, everyone's right it's just fries with nacho toppings (you know, Irish - potatoes, get it?)

    They're fries smothered with chili and cheddar cheese and topped with jalapenos, chives, olives, diced tomatoes, guacamole and sour cream. Good stuff!!!
