I love chili cheese fries so, when I found myself with little else to make for dinner, I went for it. I used frozen french fries which I cooked in hot oil instead of the oven. I wanted that salty, slightly greasy fry. I idn’t have any canned chili but I did have a package of Carroll Shelby Chili Makin’s. I didn’t have tomato sauce so I used ketchup. I didn’t have kidney beans so I left them out. I started by browning a pound of ground beef, adding the seasoning mix, ketchup, and water. I cooked it until it looked and tasted right. I then deep fried the potatoes. I piled the fries on a plate, loaded it with chili, grated cheese, chopped onion, and home made pickled jalapenos. This is not meant to be a recipe just a nod to making do with what’s on hand. Pass the Tums and Rolaids please!
