Loaded Nacho Fries Process

Note: you could choose to air fry your frozen fries, however as we were cooking a large batch, and you need to put the fries, once loaded into the oven to bake, we recommend oven cooking to say on washing up.

When the fries are done spoon your homemade or store-bought chilli randomly onto the fries in large spoonfuls.

Sprinkle with grated cheese.

Place back into the oven for a few minutes, until all the cheese has melted.

Tips for Making this Recipe

We recommend using crinkle cut chips / fries for this recipe as they stand up to the wet ingredients best and don’t fall apart as quickly as other frozen fries.

You could cook your fries in the air fryer and then transfer them onto a baking sheet, however this will increase the amount of washing up.

Variations of Loaded Nacho Frozen Fries

Spicy – if you want to make a spicer version of this nacho we recommend substituting cheddar cheese for Pepper Jack and adding a spicier salsa.

Vegetarian – to make this vegetarian switch from a regular beef chilli to a five bean chilli instead.

Smoky – Add chipotle salsa for a smokier variety.
