The last time I remember eating chili cheese fries was carry-out style when I worked at Caribou Coffee. I was all, YOLO, let’s get chili cheese fries and eat them at the tall tables by the windows and live our lives like the mocha-serving girls we are with 2 braids and chocolate on our arms. So, not much as changed? I still have chocolate on my arms or face, but I’ve upped my chili fry game. I’d pick this over that other stuff any day. (No judgment, I mean, dat stuff has a place in my heart f’realz, but I can eat this and feel ok about things after, ya know?)
P.S. Rumor has it anyone who says you can have as much of their fries as you want is lying I guess? I didn’t realize. If someone says that to me, I’m all, “Slide the whole basket over then, plz.” But come to think of it, I’ve probably never said anyone could have as many of my fries as they wanted… and if I did, I didn’t mean it. Life lessons.
I used up a bunch of Door-to-Door Organic business in here. So do it up! Customize your next order with sweet potatoes, beans and avocado! Lunch is served.
Veggie Chili Sweet Potato Fries (serves 1)
Recipe from my friend Katie who has SUCH GOOD IDEAS
- 1 cup veggie chili, leftovers*
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 3 T olive oil
- 2 pinches salt + a pinch of pepper
- pinch cayenne
- half an avocado, to serve
- goat cheese, crumbled
*Or just make this one because it takes an hour only and is da bomb. It’s what I’m using here.
- Cut 2 sweet potatoes into fries. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cayenne. Place in a 400F oven for 20 minutes. Toss. Place back in the oven for 20 more minutes. Meanwhile reheat your chili.
- Serve chili over fries with avocado, goat cheese and hot sauce. Celebrate lunch!

I’ve been eating this chili for lunch and dinner and love it on these fries! So, thanks so much for supporting the sponsors that help make this blog of mine possible.
