  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Russet potatoes cut into fries
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp pickled jalapenos

  • Meanwhile, fry bacon in a pan on the stove and prep cheese, green onions and jalapenos.
  • When fries are cooked through, top with cheese and cook another 3-5 minutes until cheese is fully melted.
  • Remove from oven then top with bacon, green onions and jalapenos. Serve with side of ranch and enjoy!
