1 to 1 1/4 pounds frozen seasoned curly fries

1 1/2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack blend 

2 teaspoons cornstarch 

3/4 cup half-and-half, plus more as needed

1/4 cup ranch dressing 

1/4 cup crumbled cooked bacon 

1/4 cup crumbled French-fried onions 

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 

Sriracha, for dotting or drizzling


  1. Preheat the oven and bake the curly fries according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, toss the cheese and cornstarch together in a small saucepan, then add the half-and-half. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes. Add a little more half-and-half to loosen the sauce if needed.
  3. Put the curly fries on a serving plate. Drizzle with the cheese sauce and ranch dressing and sprinkle with the bacon, onions and cilantro. Dot or drizzle with sriracha to taste.
