15ouncesnacho cheese sauce,heated according to label directions
Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add the diced potatoes and canola oil. Toss to fully coat the potatoes with the oil.
In a small bowl, stir together the all-purpose flour, cornstarch, taco seasoning, salt, and black pepper.
Add the seasoning mixture to the potatoes and gently toss them to coat them evenly with the seasoning mix.
Spread the seasoned potatoes in an even layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Be sure that the potatoes are spread out and not crowded together to allow the potatoes to get crispy on all sides.
Bake for 20 minutes. Using a spatula, carefully flip the potatoes, then finish baking them for an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and crispy.
Divide the potatoes into small serving portions and top each bowl with a generous spoonful of warmed nacho cheese sauce and a dollop of sour cream.
I find my bagged, diced potatoes in the refrigerated section near the eggs and fresh bagged hash browns. If you get yours from the frozen section, then be sure to thaw them completely in the refrigerator before proceeding with this recipe.
Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to keep a close eye on your potatoes as the suggested baking time approaches.
