Vegetarian Chili Cheese Fries
Spicy vegetarian chili cheese fries satisfy any and all comfort food cravings, while remaining meat-free and delicious.
Yield: 4 servings
  • 22 oz frozen French fries
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 poblano peppers, seeded and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 11 oz beef-free crumbles
  • 28 oz canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp distilled white vinegar
  • 6 oz spicy cheddar cheese, grated
  1. Heat oven to 425. Arrange the frozen fries on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake according to package instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large pot. To the pot, add the onions and pepper, along with salt and black pepper to taste. Saute over medium heat until peppers start to soften, about 5-8 minutes.
  3. Stir the beef-free crumbles into the pot and saute for a few minutes, until warmed through.
  4. Add the crushed tomatoes, smoked paprika, tomato paste, brown sugar, and vinegar into the sauce. Simmer until starting to thicken, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. When the fries are done cooking, top them with the chili and the grated cheese. Put back in the oven and cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  6. Serve hot.
