Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Wash, dry and cut potatoes into thin slices, about 1/4 inch in thickness. (instructions are for oven baked potato chips, sliced potatoes can be fried at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 6-7 minutes). Toss sliced potatoes in olive oil and place onto your baking sheet in a single layer. Season coated potatoes with salt and pepper.
Place baking sheet with sliced potatoes in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes (they should be starting to get golden), then flip your sliced potatoes over to bake the opposite side. Season with salt and pepper and return to the oven.
Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes until the potato slices are getting golden and crispy. Remove the sliced potatoes from the baking sheet and arrange in overlapping layers in your cast iron skillet or round baking dish.
Sprinkle the arranged potatoes with chives, cheese, bacon, pico or tomatoes, sliced jalapenos and green onions.
Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place layered nachos in the oven and bake for 4-5 minutes, or until cheese is fully melted.
Serve immediately. Top with reserved tomatoes, green onion, olives, chives, cilantro or parsley and serve with your favorite dip (greek yogurt, sour cream, ranch dressing, guacamole, or queso dip).
