Home Run Chili Cheese Fries™

This is great while watching the Tigers home opener or anytime.

16 - 24 oz. frozen or homemade french fries
2 - 3 T.  olive oil
1/4 tsp. each: salt, pepper, granulated garlic
Non stick cooking spray
Pinch of red pepper flakes

(2 c. approx.) prepared chili
1 - 1  1/2 c.  lite shredded cheddar or colby cheese

Preheat oven to 450' F.

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

In a cup combine oil, salt, pepper and spices. Mix well.

Combine fries and oil mixture in a mixing bowl, toss to coat.

Arrange french fries on baking sheet, put fries in oven and bake for 30 min. or until golden brown. Halfway through cooking, remove fries from oven and flip fries over if possible to cook on other side. 

While fries are cooking, pour chili into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave 2 - 4 min. or until heated.

Remove fries from oven and place on a plate.

Spoon chili over the fries.

Sprinkle cheese over the fries and place in the microwave. Microwave on high for 1 - 2 minutes or until cheese melts.
