The perfect way to serve leftover chili. The perfect way to serve leftover chili.
Number of Servings: 8


    12 ounces frozen shoestring French fries*
    2 cups chili
    1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup yellow onion, diced fine

    * We like sweet potato fries!


We used Chili Con Carne in this recipe, but you can choose your favorite recipe.


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spread the fries on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, reheat the chili on the stovetop or in the microwave.
Remove the fries from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees.
Divide the fries into four oven-safe dishes. Top each portion with 1/2 cup chili and 2 tablespoons cheese, then bake until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle each portion with one tablespoon onions.
Caution: dishes will be hot!
Serving Size: Makes 8 servings as a snack, 4 as a meal

    Much better to make fresh organic sweet potato fries! So easy: just scrub then slice the potato in the shape of fries. Toss with extra virgin olive oil and put in oven at 375 for 25 minutes! - 4/29/13

    Very good, but if you're like me, the fries need to be really crispy...I ended up baking them a little longer, for that reason. Def. satisfied my urge for gooey, cheesey fries...without the extra serving of guilt! - 4/16/13

    If you replace the chili with beans and cheese with salsa, it isn't chili cheese fries anymore. - 1/29/14

    Regarding the question about sodium: I would use leftover homemade chili. I make it pretty low-sodium. I'm going to try this next time I have leftover chili. Sounds great, especially with sweet-potato fries, and serve with a mixed-green salad. - 4/29/13

    I make sweet potato fries and freeze them. I used them for this recipe along with low-fat shredded cheddar cheese. - 4/29/13
