Instructions

  • Prepare the fries. Preheat oven to 400F (200C) and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Wash your potatoes well and quarter them lengthwise. Cut each quarter into three or four wedges for steak fries. Cut into matchsticks if you want crunchier fries. In a medium bowl, add the salt and 1 cup warm water and gently swish together with your hands to dissolve the salt. Add the sliced potatoes and more water until the potatoes are completely covered and let soak for at least 15 minutes. After they soak, drain the potatoes and pat them completely dry with a clean kitchen towel. In the same bowl, add all of the spices and mix with a spoon. Add the dry potatoes on top, and then top with the vegetable oil. Combine everything with your hands until the fries are well coated in spices and oil. Spread the fries in an even layer on the baking sheet (or two) making sure they do not touch. Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping the fries with a fork after 15 minutes. Once they are crisp and lightly browned, remove from the oven and set aside.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef once the pan is hot and add the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Cook, breaking apart with your spatula, for 8-10 minutes until the meat is no longer pink. Drain the pan if needed. Set aside to cool completely.
  • Make the burger sauce: combine all the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Taste and adjust flavors as needed! Set aside.
  • Assemble your burger nachos. Divide your fries between three containers, then top with burger meat and shredded cheese. Store your lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, and burger sauce separately until ready to eat.
