These Garlic Chili Spiced Cheese Fries are so easy to make. They are crispy and packed full of flavor. They are tossed in garlic and chili powder then smothered with cheese. They defiantly take your ordinary fries to a whole new level.
This is a great way to use up any leftover fries that you might have stashed away in the fridge from last night’s take out. These can make a great snack, appetizer or you can do like I did, just grab a fork and huddle down for a cheat day lunch. What can I say, it had been a stressful week and I needed some indulgence. The only thing that I would have added is bacon, but I didn’t have any on hand…shocking I know. Who lets themselves run out of bacon?! Anyway, feel free to add this as well.
So if you are craving fries with a bit of a kick and smothered in glorious cheese, grab some of those tasty potatoes and lets get started,
Here’s what you need:
*Cooked or frozen French fries, any cut will do
*non stick spray or canola oil
*garlic powder to taste
*chili powder to taste
*salt to taste (if the fries are already salted you might want to skip this)
*shredded cheese to taste; I used a blend of cheddar and Monterey Jack
*chives or scallions (optional)
If fries are the frozen variety, cook according to package directions.
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 375°
Place the fries on a baking sheet.
Spray with non stick spray or drizzle with canola oil very lightly.
Sprinkle the garlic, chili powder and salt over the fries; toss to coat
Take out of the oven and layer on the cheese.
Place back in the oven and cook until cheese is melted.
Sprinkle chives or scallions, to taste, over the top.
Serve with a ranch dipping sauce or any of your favorite fry sauces.
