Nacho latkes with creamy cheddar sauce

Spice up the original potato latke this holiday! Skewer bite sized potato latkes together with a layer of creamy nacho sauce served on top.

Potato Latkes:

  • 20 oz. shredded hash browns about 3 1/2 cups (frozen works great!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T flour (add more if batter doesn’t hold together)
  • 2 scallions chopped up
  • Salt
  • Pepper


Combine, form into small patties and fry until golden.

Nacho Sauce:

  • 2 T butter
  • 2 T flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Melt butter then add flour and whisk together until well combines and a paste forms. Add milk and over a medium flame whisk until sauce thickens then add shredded cheese and continue whisking until cheese melts and sauce is smooth.


  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 1 red onion
  • Juice of 1 lime


Pulse together in a processor until smooth. Optional, add 2 jalapeno peppers without seeds for spice! Plate latke skewers over sliced avocado and salsa with nacho sauce on top.
