Loaded Cheese Fries

Loaded Cheese Fries has it all; avocado, pickled red onions, spiced fries, jalapenos, cilantro, topped with a delicious cheese sauce. It’s the ultimate party food that will disappear the minute you put it down. These fries are addictively good. 

We use to get cheese fries like this at a dive bar in San Francisco. After a night of drinking, this was the surest and quickest way to forget that hangover.

Think of these cheese fries like nachos on steroids. I love making nachos with alternatives like tater tots or french fries. I love the spiced fries, I could just take a big plate of those by themselves.

I use frozen Alexia House Cut Fries with Sea Salt in this recipe, I love all their products. I’ve used their waffle cut fries before for a similar recipe and they are so good. Make your own pickled red onions for an added fresh, tangy crunch, recipe here. Add shredded pork, grilled chicken or cooked ground beef for an added protein. I’ve also opted for topping with homemade guacamole and sour cream too.
