Papas Nachos (Mexican French Fries)

Papas Nachos (Mexican French Fries)

Papas Nachos- this is what would happen if french fries and nachos had a baby! 

The heartiest, most delicious allergy-friendly twist on nachos I've ever had. Crispy organic french fries, fresh avocado mash, refried beans, salsa, sour cream and diced tomatoes layered with a quick and easy vegan melted cheese.

What better way to kick off the weekend, than with football games, end of Summer pool parties and Papas Nachos!

What? You’ve never heard of Papas Nachos before?  Don’t worry, I hadn’t either until I went to Mexico. But if you like loaded nachos and you like french fries, then your taste buds are in for a treat.

French Fry base for Papas Nachos


Papas Nachos are crispy baked french fries, covered in layers of delicious mexican-dip favorites. You could actually call these Mexican French Fries, but I think Papas Nachos is more fun and authentic.  When I first saw these on the menu, I was already thinking about how I could make them “Xander friendly”.  I knew there was a way, there’s always a way! So, I took a picture of it so I couldn’t forget and put it on my “must make” list.  And let me tell you, it’s still amazing, without all that other stuff.

By using potatoes instead of corn or flour tortillas, this appetizer is gluten-free and with a little help from my favorite vegan products (Daiya and Tofutti) it’s also free of dairy and eggs and can be soy-free as well.  Who needs all those allergens to make a delicious appetizer, I know I don’t.  No one will miss any of it and you can be thinking “I told you so” in your head the whole time they’re all chowing down.

But that’s just the base, so hang on for the best part! The toppings……

  • vegan refried beans
  • chopped tomatoes & red onions
  • avocado mashed with a little taco seasoning and lemon juice
  • salsa I like mine spicy
  • sour cream (for dairy free, we choose Tofutti-contains soy or Daiya- soy free)
  • cheese sauce (Daiya for the win)

You can make it extra fancy and serve on a pretty wooden plate, topped with sliced jalapeños for everyone to share.

Or you can serve it in a disposable bowl and eat the whole darn thing yourself!  Whatever makes you happy! I kinda like the single bowl idea myself 🙂

So, are you ready for it? Drumroll please……..

      Thanks Rebecca. You could even do sweet potato fries if you wanted to make them even healthier. 🙂
