Nothing is more satisfying to teenage boys as Chili Cheese Fries! I have a really Easy Crock Pot Chili recipe that my boys go crazy for. Add some Zesty Twirls from Ore-Ida plus a little shredded cheese and they are in heaven. Sometimes we serve leftover chili with these Chili Baked Potatoes for an easy dinner.
Rather it is game day or the new movie we have all been dying to see, when we gather around the tv, there has to be food. Good snacks to be exact.
I depend on having my freezer stocked when the occasion arises that we can all enjoy family time and great food without spending hours in the kitchen.
My favorite is snack is spinach dip and I always keep a box or two of Bird's Eye Chopped Spinach ready to go in my freezer when the craving hits.
Now how about some chili cheese fries! You know you are craving them!
- 1 28 oz Ore-Ida Zesty Twirls
- 1 batch Easy Crock Pot Chili (or your favorite recipe)
- 2 cups shredded cheese (we like a combo of Cheddar and Pepper-Jack)
- Optional garnishes:
- Sour Cream, Ketchup, Green Onions, Avocado, Jalapenos
- 3 cups vegetable oil for frying
Heat vegetable oil in a large cast iron skillet or Dutch oven to 350 degrees. Add Zesty Twirls in batches and cook about 3 to 5 minutes or until crispy and cooked through. Drain on a paper towel lined baking sheet.
Add zesty twirls to a plate and top with prepared chili and cheese and other desired garnishes.
