  • 2 pounds Maris Piper or Russet potatoes, sliced into ¼” rounds
  • 3-4 cups vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • 1 cup vegetable oil, for shallow frying
  • 2½ tbsp olive oil, for baking
  • Salt and black pepper, as needed

Guinness cheese sauce

  • 3-4 cups cheese
  • 1½ cups milk, at room temperature
  • ½ cup Guinness
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • A few drops of hot sauce, optional
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste


  • Crispy bacon, chopped
  • Red onion, diced
  • Tomato, diced
  • Jalapeños, diced


Step 1

The first thing that you have to do, is to wash and clean the potato skins well to make sure there is no dirt left on them, then slice them, and place them in a large bowl filled with cold water for about 20 minutes or as long as you need. This will remove the starch and make the fries have a fluffier center. While the potato slices are soaking prepare the sauce. In a medium-sized pot or saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter, then whisk in the flour until it turns into a paste, and slowly add the Guinness while whisking constantly to ensure that no lumps will form. Next, gradually pour the milk while still whisking, then once thickened, add the Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Lower the heat, then start stirring in the cheese until thick, turn off the heat, and let it rest to thicken even more.

Step 2

Once done soaking and ready to cook, drain off all the water, and thoroughly dry them with a tea towel, this will remove as much moisture as possible to help them crisp up. You can deep fry the potatoes for about 10 to 15 minutes at a consistent 350°F temperature of oil, shallow fry until nice and golden on the outside, or coat it with some olive oil, season with salt, and pepper, and bake in a 390°F oven for about 30 to 40 minutes or until golden and crunchy, make sure to turn them halfway to not burn the potatoes. Once done frying the potatoes, sprinkle them with salt and pepper as they rest, if you baked them, no need to season them with salt and pepper. Spread the potatoes on a large serving plate, then drizzle the prepared cheese sauce, and top it with bacon, red onion, tomatoes, jalapeños, or whatever nacho topping you like. Serve and enjoy!
