My Ultimate Chili Cheese Fries Recipe is really something else. I don’t want to brag, but this is an out-of-this-world, look-forward-to-it-all-day sort of dinner recipe.
Believe it or not, this is a low-calorie version of everyone’s favourite loaded french fries. One serving is just 420 calories, and 24g of protein–part of this is the homemade chili, and non-processed cheese. There’s nothing but freshly grated cheddar over these delicious Chili Cheese Fries!
I’ve tried to incorporate as many veggies as possible in these Chili Cheese Fries, and that starts with the chili itself. I love a homemade chili, and the surprising part is how easy chili is to make. You don’t need tons of time for it to simmer–in fact, you can make it as the fries are cooking in the oven if you get your timing right!
I don’t know about you, but I like my fries fully loaded. The more toppings the better. You can of course just use some shredded cheese and green onions on top of the chili, but it’s your call. I like my fries supreme style!!
The trick to great oven fries is to not coat them in too much oil, flip them at the right time, and turn the oven pan about halfway through the cooking time. Believe it or not, you’ll want to cook the fries for longer the first time you put them in–about 13-15 minutes at first and then 8 minutes after you flip them and rotate the pan. Take it from me, it’s a science. The science behind great fries that is!
How gorgeous do these look? Will you be trying these Ultimate Chili Cheese Fries?!
