Fiesta Potato Rounds
This take on potato nachos are perfect for a snack, a party appetizer, or game day finger food!
- 12 oz Russet Potatoes, scrubbed
- 2 ½ teaspoons canola oil, divided
- Coarsely ground sea salt, to taste
- ¼ cup black beans, canned, drained and rinsed
- ¼ cup frozen corn kernels
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- ¼ cup diced tomatoes, I used grape tomatoes
- 1 lime wedge
- ¼ teaspoon taco seasoning
- 1 tablespoon sliced scallions
- 8 wedges of The Laughing Cow Creamy Spicy Pepper Jack flavor cheese, softened to room temperature (their Creamy Queso Fresco Chipotle flavor would also be great in this)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Slice the potatoes into 1/4” thick rounds (I got 24 slices). Place the rounds into a large mixing bowl and drizzle with 2 teaspoons of canola oil. Stir together until the potatoes are fully coated. Lay the potato rounds in a single layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until potatoes begin to get golden.
While the potatoes are cooking, bring the remaining ½ teaspoon of canola oil over medium heat in a small skillet. Add the black beans and corn and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and tomatoes and cook for another minute. Squeeze the lime wedge over the top and stir in the taco seasoning. Remove to a side dish and stir in the scallions.
When the potato rounds are done, allow them to cool for about 5 minutes before handling. Place the cheese wedges into a bowl or dish and use a spoon or butter knife to whip/mash them together until well combined and ready to spread. Use a knife to spread the cheese evenly across the tops of all the finished potato rounds. Top each cheesy potato round with 1 ½ teaspoons of the black bean & corn mixture from step three and serve immediately.
