• Jalapeno Texas Cheese Fries

    One of my favorite comfort foods is Jalapeno Texas cheese fries, but in an effort to make them slightly healthier, we bake them, rather than frying them. This absolutely delicious dish is one that is best served rarely, as it's not the heart healthiest choice.

    You'll Need:

    4-6 Large potatoes, scrubbed clean (about 1 1/2 potatoes per person)
    3 T. Olive Oil
    4-6 slices bacon, cooked & finely chopped
    2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
    Jalapeno slices (pickled jalapenos work wonderfully!)
    1 tsp. seasoning

    Preheat the oven to 425F
    Cut the potatoes into fries (this is much easier if you have a french fry cutter!), dump into a large bowl. Pour olive oil over the fries, stirring to each fry. Divide the fries between 2 large cookie sheets, sprinkle with seasoning salt.

    Bake for 20 Minutes, remove from oven turn the fries over to brown the other side, place them back into the oven for 12 more minutes.

    Remove from oven, dish into individual serving casserole dishes, top with cheddar cheese, sliced jalapenos, and bacon bits. return to oven for 2-4 minutes to melt the cheese.

    Serve with ranch dressing.

    These can also be made
    by frying the french fries first, then adding the toppings and baking for a few minutes to melt the cheese.

      This looks great! We make homemade fries often, but this takes it to another level!
