Homemade Nacho Cheese Fries

Homemade Nacho Cheese Fries

There Is nothing more Addictive than cheese fries. When I eat something fried, I make sure it tastes good so that I know it was worth it!

Before a friend of mine told me about this recipe I used to try melting the Cheese in the Microwave but as soon as we started eating it the cheese was already firm and uncheesy. ย This nacho cheese stays nice and runny. ย Lets get started!

Start off by peeling and cutting the potatoes into thin strips like so. Place them in deep oil on high temperature until you begin to see a golden color.

While the fries are cooking combine the ingredients into a bowl and place in a small pot or pan and heat on medium until it begins to simmer. Mix it so it doesn’t clump up together.

      Drooling is a good sign Cathy! Love your blog ๐Ÿ™‚


    my mouth is watering just looking at these pics! I always wondering how they make the cheese stay nice and runny in restaurants! Thanks layla. Im def pinning this!


      You left out all of the ingredients (seasonings) in addition to the pepper. Clearly you’ve added either cayenne powder or chili powder because there is something red in the bowl,


        Something went wrong with the system and the recipes were not showing up. We have the problem fixed now and you should be able to see the recipe above. And yes it does contain paprika and cayenne pepper but that’s optional ๐Ÿ™‚
