A must try

Last week I had chili and home fries on the menu. But after received a comment on my Meal Plan Monday from Ahorne at the testosterone palace and seeing that she had posted a recipe for chili cheese fries I thought I would be together my own concoction.

Kate's Chili N Cheese Fries

The ingredients

Steak Spice (bought at the bulk barn)
Homemade Chili (it was in the freezer)

Cheese sauce
1 Tbsp Margarine
1 Tbsp Flour
1 cup milk/cream
grated cheddar cheese
cheese slice
the last bit of scrapings from the Cheese Whiz bottle

Because it was a hot day and I really didn't want to use the oven for a long period of time I cheated with the potatoes. When I had a spare moment between feeding, changing and keeping the babe happy I scrubbed down some potatoes and stuck them in the micro for 5 minutes. Once they cooled off I cut them into chucks rolled them in oil and sprinkled them in steak spice.

Bake at 400 for 10 minutes to get crispy.

Well they were baking I heated the chili up in a pot and made the cheese sauce. When hubby got home I put the fries on a plate, crowned them with chili and then smoothered them in cheese sauce!

Hubby was so impressed and delighted to be having this master piece for supper. And of course what kind of Dietitian would I be if I didn't round off the meal with a delicious side salad made with Romain lettuce, peppers, mushrooms, raisins, dried cranberries, soy nuts, sunflower seeds and sliced strawberries.

my hubby is thanking you for inspiring dinner 2 nights ago. It's been really hot here and I was crazy for using the stove top and the oven but it all evens out because I haven't used it since. Gotta love a big ol' pot o' chili :)
