"Nacho Fries" Topped Cheeseburger

30 Min

When Isabel M. from Poughkeepsie, NY noticed that we were conducting a Dinner-in-a-Dash recipe contest, sponsored by our friends at… it got her thinking. The story goes that she is a huge fan of nachos, and the more unusual they are, the more intrigued she is! So she thought to herself, “What if I top a burger with them?”. Well, we’re glad she did because her creation was an unexpected treat that was worthy of making her a hands-down winner. Her secret weapon was starting with a handful of ingredients from the refrigerated and frozen aisle of her local market.  So give it a try and we think you’ll love it as much as her family and all of us in the Test Kitchen do. 

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 (32-ounce) bag frozen French fries
  • 4 frozen beef burgers
  • 4 slices pepper jack cheese
  • 1 cup frozen diced onion and peppers
  • 1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
  • 4 buns, toasted
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, cut in half
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced (optional)
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Test Kitchen Tip: When it comes to the fries, we prefer the skinnier fast-food style, however, if you love steak fries or seasoned fries…go for it, as there are no rules. Check out the other winning recipes, Cheddar Potato-Crusted Beefy Casserole and Easy Chicken Pot Pie.
