These Grilled Chili Cheese Fries are a quick and easy summer dish the whole family will love!
We all have our favorite comfort foods, and a lot of them tend to vary with the seasons. You’re not likely to see me sipping eggnog in the summer; instead, I’ll be scarfing down some chili cheese fries! Anytime you put chili and cheese together in a dish, I pretty much can’t say no. And when you load it onto something like a hot dog or fries, you can guarantee I’ll be back for seconds!
I found this really easy and tasty recipe over at Forkful.com, where ConAgra is hosting the #GreatAmericanCookIn!

These Grilled Chili Cheese Fries are super simple to make. You just need some aluminum foil, a grill, and a handful of products, and you’re well on your way to some great ballpark food at home! Did I mention these were made on the grill? GENIUS! But there is an oven prep option just in case! I mean, just look at all that melty goodness! With ingredients like Alexia French Fries and Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes, you’re sure to leave no fry behind!
- PAM® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
- 1 pkg 15 oz each Alexia® Yukon Gold Julienne Fries with Sea Salt
- 1 can 15 oz each Wolf® Brand Chili With Beans
- 1 can 14.5 oz each Hunt's® Diced Tomatoes, drained
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat gas grill for medium-high heat. Overlap by three-fourths two 18x20-inch pieces of heavy foil on the counter; coat with cooking spray. Place fries in the center of foil.
Stir together chili and drained tomatoes in medium bowl. Spread mixture evenly over fries; top with cheese. Double fold top and ends of foil, leaving space for steam to gather.
Carefully place packet on the grate; cover grill. Grill 25 minutes or until fries are tender and cheese melts.
Oven option: Packet may be baked on shallow pan in 425°F oven 30 minutes or until fries are tender and cheese melts.
