Chili Cheese Fries Recipe

If you want a simple but delicious appetizer chili cheese fries are exactly what you’re looking for. I wouldn’t really consider this a recipe but more like guidelines for making chili cheese fries. Just as the name says, chili cheese fries are fries topped with chili and shredded cheese. Garnishing with green onions adds a really nice flavor into the mix. To save the most time and effort, using canned chili will work the best but you can also use leftover chili or even make your own. If you want to save even more time, a lot of this can be done in the microwave. Enjoy.

It looks a lot like a poutine like we have here in Montreal.
