“Are you tired of boring old nachos? Want to kick up your wine & cheese party a notch or two? Then give these nachos a try! This appetizer is an inspiration from a hotel bar my coworkers and I sometimes visit after a long day at work. You can also use gorgonzola and it tastes great too. I have only used original flavor kettle chips because I think using flavored may compete with the pungent blue cheese. Please note: I eyeball the ingredients so the below measurements are approximate. Measure to your personal taste. Servings are approximate. This appy pairs very nicely with a glass of red.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces potato chips (kettle chips, original flavor. I usually use 1/2 the bag.)
  • 6 ounces blue cheese, crumbles (to taste, I usually use about 3-4 oz.)
  • 14 cup green onion top, chopped
  • 1 -2 roma tomato, diced
  • 12 cup blue cheese dressing (good quality. I usually use about 1/3 to 1/2 of the jar.)


  1. Place a layer of kettle chips on platter.
  2. Drizzle some of the blue cheese dressing over chips with a spoon.
  3. Sprinkle some of the blue cheese crumbles over chips.
  4. Add some of the diced tomatoes.
  5. Add some of the green onions.
  6. Repeat layers.
  7. Enjoy!
