Chorizo Waffle Fries

4 Servings

A quick, albeit super unhealthy, weeknight meal; these waffle fries are just different enough from normal cheese fries to keep you on your culinary toes.

I cheated for the sake of quickness (and laziness) and used store-bought frozen fries. If you prefer to substitute your homemade fries, that will only serve to improve this dish.

The chorizo, to me anyway, is what sets this dish apart. Easily one of, if not my favorite, sausages. It adds a fantastic spicy flavor that cannot be duplicated.

I also topped these fries with another close personal favorite,  Candied Jalapenos. You can find this recipe on our blog: 

So enjoy and don’t skimp on the cheese!

When the sauce is starting to thicken, begin adding cheese a little at a time until all is incorporated.
Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
Chorizo Fries
Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove chorizo from casing and fry in a skillet, using a spatula to break up chorizo. Cook for about five minutes on medium heat until chorizo is cooked through. Set aside.
