Original Recipe

Loaded-Up French Fry Bar


  1. 2 large batches homemade baked french fries
  2. For Taco Fries:
  3. 8 oz. of sour cream
  4. ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  5. ½ cup white onion, chopped
  6. 1 lb. precooked carnitas
  7. For Pizza Fries:
  8. 16 oz. marinara sauce
  9. 1 12 oz. bag shredded mozzarella cheese
  10. 4 oz. pepperoni, sliced
  11. For Nacho Fries:
  12. 14 oz. nacho cheese sauce
  13. 2 jalapenos, sliced into thin rounds

  1. Cook french fries per the instructions on the bag.
  2. Put the french fries on a large plate, and surround the fries with all the topping choices, displayed in similar sized bowls.
  3. Any topping that you would like to serve hot can be microwaved. We recommend heating the carnitas, marinara sauce, and nacho cheese sauce.
  4. If you would like melted cheese on your pizza fries, simply cover the french fries in cheese and put them in the microwave for a minute, then top with marinara and pepperoni!
