Easy to Make, Even Easier to Eat

To me, Chili Cheese Fries are very addicting. They are a meal in themselves so plan on being full when you finish them. [You will want a second helping] Smile.

My first introduction to Chili Cheese fries was earlier in the year. We were at some show and someone had a booth. Instead of a hot dog stand or hamburger stand, the offering was these fries.Well. I do like chili dogs at the fair and I thought I would give these potatoes a try. They were delicious.The fries are served fresh from the deep fryer so are very hot. The flavor is salty, cheesy and the chili flavor compares to a burrito.

So, I decided to buy the ingredients and make them at home, since I do own a deep fryer and I was able to locate the liquid cheese in a jar in the spicy food aisle. I went to the soup aisle and found the Hormel Chili with no beans was what I selected. Hormel Chili with beans would have worked as well.

Deep Fry your potato

  2. Deep fry for 15 minutes, then, drain for 5 minutes, then put in deep fryer again until golden brown. Drain.
  3. Put cooked potato on plate, cover with several spoonfuls of both chili and cheese sauce. Heat in microwave until cheese and chili have merged together.
