Deep fried, trans fatty fries are topped with not-so-lean chili & artery clogging cheese. I guess that's what makes it taste so good. LOL
Use 99% fat-free turkey chili & make with steak fries which are closer to real potatoes than french fries, especially when you bake them. I prefer low-fat cheese because it is much better tasting than fat-free & a much healthier option than real cheese. It is sometimes hard to find so another option is to make your own blend of cheese mixing with fat-free cheese. It will take 20 minutes until the fries are cooked so heat up your chili as you wait. When everything is cooked then top the fries with chili & grate your cheese on top. This is a protein packed low fat recipe that even the kids will love!
