I have been drooling thinking about these french fries ever since Joy the Baker posted them on her blog close to two weeks ago. They are ingenious and oh-so-good. Instead of topping the fries with traditional chili she uses all the same flavors of a traditional chili to coat and then bake the fries. They come out perfectly thin and crispy. Then to top things off you add melted cheese. I am getting hungry just thinking about them. I seriously recommend going out and making these as soon as possible.

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Prepare two large thin baking sheets with parchment paper, sprayed with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the corn starch, chili powder, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, cumin, and ancho chili powder.
  3. Then in a larger bowl, first coat your fries with cooking spray. Then add the olive oil, Worcestershire, and grill seasoning. Using tongs, toss to coat.
  4. Add the cornstarch mixture and toss to coat. Make sure all the fries are coated.
  5. Layer in a single layer (this is very important for crispy fries) on the baking sheets and cook for about 35-45 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fries. The thinner the fries the faster they will cook. Share around a couple of times during baking.
  6. Once cooked, toss on the cheese and place back in the oven until melted. Dress them up with the scallions and serve.
