Chili Cheese Fries

Beth Pierce


Scrumptious Chili Cheese Fries made with a hearty slightly spicy thick beef chili and topped with a lusciously creamy cheddar cheese sauce. They make the perfect football game and movie night munchies. I love to serve these at our gameday shindigs with Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings, Buffalo Chicken Dip, and Potato Skins. Family and friends just love them and with the ease of an airfryer real crispy french fries are a breeze.
