Fingerling Potato Nachos
  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Get out a large sheet tray and set aside.
  2. Using a mandoline, slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch fry shape. Alternatively, you can slice with a knife by hand.
  3. Place slice potatoes into a large bowl filled with warm water. Stir the potatoes around to help release their starch then drain into a colander. This step helps to create the crispiest potatoes!
  4. Pour the drained potatoes onto your sheet tray. Top with olive oil, salt, cumin and chili powder and mix together with clean hands. Place into the oven and roast for 30 minutes, stirring halfway.
  5. Once the potatoes have fully cooked and crisped, top with 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese. Place back into the oven for 3-4 minutes to melt the cheese.
  6. Top the nachos with tomatillo salsa, enjoy!
