We had leftover chili, and my husband loves chili cheese fries so we just had to try this. We thought the whole cheese sauce part was a bit uncalled for so we just made the fries as directed, heated up the chili and poured that over the fries. We then took some shredded cheese (cheddar and sharp) sprinkled that over top and put the whole thing back in the oven until the cheese was melted. We got out a couple of forks and couple of drinks and it was gone in no time......

Because I did not have enough cheese slices to make the cheese sauce for this, I went with Velveeta's Ultimate Queso (which is basically Velveeta melted with Ro-Tel). I used shoestring fries and homemade chili in this recipe. The boys thought that I was the best wife/mother ever. GREAT boy food and excellent for a mother who just wants to make a quick Sunday treat for her boys.

We love chili cheese fries. Instead of the whole process of making cheese sauce I just sprinkle Monteray Jack and cheddar cheese, crumbled up bacon and jalapeno peppers or green onions and throw it back in the oven until the cheese melts. Love it.
