Introduction: How to Make Fries Supreme
"Fries Supreme" is a delicious dish typically served at Taco Bell restaurants. This instructable will show you how to re-create it at home - where you can customize the ingredients making it both monumentally tastier and a tiny bit healthier (3x the veggies as in store, easily).
A great, gluten-free alternative to tacos!
You will need:
1 small Vine-ripe Tomato
1 bunch Chives or Green Onions
1/3 cup Sour Cream
1/3 cup (shredded) Cheddar cheese
1/3 lb Ground Beef
1/3 bag (about 350g) French Fries
1 tbsp (or to taste) Spectacular Taco Spice -- click here for an instructable!
Yield: 2 giant plates for a main course or 4 side-plates to be served alongside a second dish.
Step 1: Prep
Spread the frozen french fries over a baking tray and place in the oven according to the instructions (middle rack, 450℉, turn half-way through.)
While the fries are cooking, grate the cheese, dice the tomatoes and cut the chives or green onions - then set aside.
Add taco spice to the ground beef and simmer on medium-low until dark brown, then remove from heat and set aside.
Step 2: Fries
When the french fries are nearly done, remove them from the oven and cover them with grated cheese and crumbled bits of spicy ground beef.
Place back in the oven on the top rack, turn on the broiler to high and let brown for 3-5 minutes. Remove from oven and serve onto two plates.
Step 3: Toppings
On each plate of meaty, cheesy fries, add a dollop of sour cream, and handful of diced tomato and two handfuls of chopped green onion or chives.
Eat it while the fries, meat and cheese are piping hot and the sour cream and veggies are still cold. This instructable should make two giant plates or 3-4 small.
