• 4 cups thin sliced raw potatoes 
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 15 ounce can refried beans
  • 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Oil for frying

Additional Topping Ideas:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup guacamole
  • 1/3 cup sliced olives
  • 1/2 cup fresh salsa
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup sliced or pickled jalapenos
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • Soak potatoes in cold water for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.
  • Remove from water and pat dry with paper towels.
  • In a cast iron pan or small pot heat frying oil to 350.
  • In batch fry potatoes until golden (about 2-3 minutes).  Be sure to flip potatoes as needed to not burn potatoes.
  • Drain potatoes on wire rack.  Sprinkle some taco seasoning and kosher salt on potatoes while they are still hot.
  • Spread potato chips out onto a baking sheet (or other desired oven-safe baking dish including a 9x13 pan, cast iron skillet, or even a pie plate).
  • Sprinkle 2 cups of the cheese over the chips. Dot with the beans (if using) mixture. Top with remaining 2 cups of cheese.
  • Bake in the 350 degree oven for 5 to 7 minutes, until cheese is fully melted.
  • Remove from heat and add additional toppings as desired. Serve warm.
