Chilli Fries

I often like to pretend that my culinary exploits are nothing but healthy, extravagant, forays into only the best of international cuisine.

But that's just not true.

There are a few dishes which we'll just... euphemistically... call white-trash food.

In fairness, we don't succumb to white-trash food more than a few times a month... but it does happen.

I believe in moderation, and as much as I would council a culinary-ignorant human being to try some Beouf Bourgignon or some Brandy Truffle Cream Pasta before he or she dies... so too might I suggest they should at least try some Greasy New-York style Pizza, or some simple Mac & Cheese before they die.  

Experiences are what make life worth living.


So... this week, I pulled together a stunning meal for left-over night, which just happened to have the unfortunate status of also being kind of trashy.

Chilli Fries!

Heh heh heh.

I recently made some super spicy chilli sin carne, and had need to use up the remainder.  And, remembering that my wife doesn't really like left-over night... and that she didn't really love the spiciness of this chilli... I opted for something a little different.

I baked some frozen french fries.

And then I re-heated the chilli in a sauce pan.

Put one on top of the other in a large bowl, top with some grated cheddar, a healthy (this was exceptionally spicy chilli) dollop of greek yogurt, and some freshly chopped parsley, and there you have it.

So trashy... but so delicious and easy!
