Ingredients

FOR THE FRIES:

  • Snag your favorite bag of frozen sweet potato fries or regular fries and and bake according to package instructions. I like to flip mine halfway to make them extra crispy! Feel free to think outside the box with this concept and use anything from curly fries to waffle fries to tater tots as your base.

TASTY TOPPING OPTIONS:

  • Cheese
  • Black Beans or Pinto Beans
  • Pickled or Sliced JalapeƱo Peppers
  • Fresh Cilantro and/or chopped green onion
  • Diced Bell Peppers
  • Chopped Tomato
  • Pico de Gallo
  • Salsa and/or Guacamole
  • Chopped Avocado
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt
  • Jalapeno Ranch

SPICE IT UP:

  • If you really want to amp up the flavor try seasoning the fries with a combination of chili powder, paprika, and garlic powder before baking. It's SO delicious! Feeling the heat? You can even add cayenne pepper too! (I always do)

Instructions

  1. Bake your fries according to package direction, or opt for homemade by roasting sweet potato slices or wedges.
  2. Flip halfway for extra crispy spuds.
  3. Arrange in a small pile in the center of a baking sheet and top with cheese, beans, and any veggies you'd like baked into the cheese fries, like jalapeƱos.
  4. Return to the oven for 15 minutes, or until cheese is hot and melty.
  5. Top with all your favorite veggies, sauces, and toppings and dig in while it's hot!
