Chili Fries

  • Level: Easy
  • Yield: 6 servings
  • Total: 45 min
  • Prep: 5 min
  • Cook: 40 min


1/2 bag (about 16 ounces) french-fried potatoes (recommended: Ore-Ida Golden Crinkles)

1 pound ground beef

1 (12-ounce) bottle chili sauce (recommended: Heinz)

1 packet chili seasoning (recommended: Lawry's)

1/2 cup water

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Shredded Cheddar, optional (recommended: Kraft)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Lay fries in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until crisp and golden.
  3. In a large pot over medium heat, break up ground beef and brown, stirring constantly to break up all the clumps to fine ground.
  4. Add remaining ingredients through the onion powder. Bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve hot fries on a plate smothered with chili and topped with shredded cheese, if using.

This was way too sweet! Never had chili like this. I think the Heinz chili sauce overpowered the chili seasoning. Didn’t taste anywhere close to the chili I’m used to at those burger places. So the search continues.
