Potato Nachos (microwave)

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Ginny Sue

A hearty snack for two or three. This is not an "eat with your fingers" type of nachos. You definitely need a fork for this one!

Very good potatoes. My microwave took 8 minutes to cook to desired doneness and 1 minute on 50% power to melt the cheese. Served with sour cream because we always have it with nachos. Will make this one again.
