Tonight’s Ghetto Gourmet: Taco Fries

As requested, here is how I made taco fries out of random contents from my pantry/fridge:

Ingredients: Frozen french fries (hopefully not freezer burned), taco seasoning, can of tomatoes with green chilis, chicken breast (or ground beef if you have it), tons of cheese (I had one labeled fiesta blend), sour cream.

In a paper bag (or ziplock): add fries and about 3 tbsp of taco seasoning, I also added black pepper and a bit of garlic powder. Shake up to coat the fries. Bake on cookie sheet in oven for about 20 minutes.

In skillet: add chopped or pulled chicken, can of tomatoes (drained), and rest of taco seasoning. Cook on stove top unit chicken is done and the house smells like a cheap taco joint.

When the fries are crisp: add meat and tomato mixture. Coat with a heaping mound of cheese. Put back in oven, bake until cheese is brown and melty.

Add sour cream to taste and EAT UP. This shit is good. But you should note I had to eat them with a fork, ooey gooey goodness.

This recipe can be modified to whatever is on hand. After all that is the point of the ghetto gourmet cooking style. Use what you have, create something different than a boring old box of mac n cheese.

I ate this while watching The Mighty Boosh. It made the cheese taste cheesier, the meat taste meatier. Everything is better with the Boosh.
