  • 1 lb frozen crinkle cut french fries
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 medium onion finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 red bell pepper finely chopped
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 1 jalapeno sliced, optional
  • salsa and sour cream for garnish as desired


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non stick spray. Toss fries with seasoning salt and lay fries in a flat layer on baking sheet with as much space around each one as possible.
  • Bake fries for 15-20 minutes, stirring once, until crispy.
  • Meanwhile, cook the ground beef and onion (add the peppers as well if you prefer them tender) on the stove top over medium-high heat until browned. Stir in taco seasoning and set aside.
  • When fries are crispy, top with some of the cheese, then beef mixture, and red peppers. Bake until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle on green onions and jalapeno (if using)
