Chili Cheese Oven Fries
Clean and pat dry the potatoes. Do not remove the skin.
Slice into desired thickness.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F with the rack on the lower level.
In a large bowl toss the potatoes with the oil, salt and pepper and any other toppings you like.
Place on the baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake for 25-35 minutes tossing the fries in the middle of baking time.
While the fries are baking prepare the chili. Cook the meat in a 12 inch cast iron skillet until browned, breaking up the meat up as it cooks. Remove the meat from the skillet with a slotted spoon. Discard oil.
Heat olive oil over medium heat in a the same skillet, no need to wash it. Saute the onion for 5-6 minutes until softened and fragrant.
Add the bell pepper and cook a few more minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil and then to a simmer for 20 minutes or until chili thickens.
Plate the fries in a bake safe casserole dish or single serving dishes. Top with chili and handfuls of cheese. Bake for 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted. Serve hot with various toppings.
