Monterey Loaded Nacho Fries

Monterey Loaded Nacho Fries from Lemony Thyme

I know for many families Friday is Pizza Night.  At our house we’ve been toasting the end of the work week with a cold beverage and a tray of Nachos.  Last Friday we made a big pan of roasted corn & poblano nachos with sausage and queso fresco.  They were amazing.  Tonight it’s Monterey Loaded Nacho Fries, inspired by our crazy good Monterey Chicken recipe.

In place of tortilla chips, we made oven baked potato chips.  We then layered them with bbq sauce, crumbled bacon, scallion, tomatoes, jalapeno, Monterey & cheddar cheese.  They were the perfect Friday night treat.
