Quick and Easy Chili Cheese Fries Game Day Recipe

We aren’t game day people, really – we don’t even watch football unless my oldest daughter is home to turn it on! However,  we are game day food people! One of my favorite game day  foods is chili cheese fries! Earlier this week, we had a “fry night”. I made a huge batch of fries and then we all added toppings to suit. Chili Cheese Fries were on the menu of course!

We had just come back from gymnastics and it was already late to begin cooking, so I took the quickest, easiest way out.  Usually we throw the fries in the deep fryer. This time, I just baked them for simplicity’s sake. It’s faster to throw a bag of fries on a sheet pan and go. These turned out pretty delicious and crispy even in the oven. When they came out, I just put them on plates without salt.

Because it was a night of convenience, we went with pre-made items. I had some frozen chili that I threw in the microwave along with a can of queso blanco. When they were nice and hot, I poured them on top of my fries. You could cheat and use canned chili too, but I’m the queen of frozen leftovers.

Then my youngest daughter decided that she wanted to share my plate of food instead of eating her own. So I left the Rotel and sour cream on the side for dipping. If I wasn’t sharing, I’d have poured them right on top too. 

(Side note: Squeeze sour cream is THE BEST. None of that watery gross stuff. )

I managed to get a few bites of hers, but I was pretty much on my own. I ended up making some loaded pepperoni pizza fries for myself, which were AMAZING too (blog post to follow in a few weeks!) I’ve been thinking of a million other ways to do fries since then, though, so stay tuned! I’ll be adding more ideas over the next few months!
