Texas Cheese Fries

January 31, 2013 in appetizer by amanda



So I guess the Superbowl is this weekend?

I stopped caring about the NFL when it became apparent that my teams weren’t going all the way. But I do care about Superbowl food! I care a lot about Superbowl food. I did a post last year with some of my favorite football snacks so I decided to skip that post this year. But I couldn’t let the Superbowl go by without sharing at least one snack idea.

I’m pretty obsessed with Texas Cheese Fries lately. I frequently request that we go to Chili’s just so I can get a gigantic plate of them but I’ve never made them at home. Because omg, so much work! Compared to going out, of course! ;) I’m pretty excited that I finally made some though because really, the only work you have to do is cooking the bacon and shredding the cheese. And if you buy already shredded cheese… well, you my friend, are smarter than me.

I loved them. I ate almost the whole plate by myself. No shame.

Nicole made the perfect Superbowl drink: Michelada Marias! They are kicked up Coronas with lime, salt, and hot sauce!
