Nachos are great and all, but nacho fries are better!
What you’ll need
- Shredded Cheddar
- Sour Cream
To make these, you’ll want to start with a big batch of Fries. If you don’t feel like making you’re own, feel free to use frozen. You’ll also want to make a bowl of this Pico de Galo. Last thing you need to do is fry up some bacon, then chop it up into bits.
- Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pile on the fries. Evenly distribute most of the bacon onto the fries and top with a layer of cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
- Top with Pico, and more bacon. Drizzle with Sour cream and garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve with limes, more jalapeños, and some extra pico.
Get the perfect fries, every time.
- 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled
- Canola oil, for frying
- Cut potatoes into fry sized pieces either by hand or with a fry cutter. Soak the cut potatoes in ice water for at least 1 hour. Remove from water and dry well.
