Loaded Football Fries
It's the first Sunday of the football season, which means all-day football watching, drinks, and of course FOOD. During the season we like to indulge on some not-so-healthy football foods. Now we could order take-out, but I thought why not make our gluttonous treats at home and maybe even make them a bit healthier.
For loaded football fries you'll need:
1/2 bag of crinkle or waffle fries
1/2 medium onion, diced
few tablespoons of olive or vegetable oil
1/2 can of chili, vegetarian chili, or beans
few tablespoons of cheese sauce
few dollops of sour cream or non-fat plain Greek yogurt
salt and pepper to taste
chopped green onions/scallions
1. Bake the fries in the oven until crispy. About 25 minutes.
2. While the fries are cooking, get a sauce pan and add oil and diced onions. Cook until translucent. Then add chili or beans of your choice. Cook until hot.
3. Warm a few tablespoons of cheese sauce in a separate pan or in a microwave-safe dish in the microwave.
4. When the fries are crispy, transfer them to a plate. Salt and pepper to taste. Then layer your other ingredients: chili/beans, cheese sauce, sour cream or Greek yogurt, and top with green onions.
May the best team win!
