WOO HOO! We absolutely loved this dish. After one bite my hubby said, and I quote, "You can feel free to make this again...soon!" Like wicked cook 46, I used jalapeños in place of green chilis, as we can't get them here in Auckland. Our choice of salsa was a lovely salsa verde. I also added a few chopped tomatoes to the dish just before grilling in the oven. What a nice and easy dinner. Made for ZWT 5! Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Follow package directions for baking fries. Set aside.
  2. Brown ground beef in medium skillet over medium-high heat, adding the 2 taco seasoning mix packages along with the 1 1/2 cups water. Cook 5 minutes then remove from heat.
  3. Spoon salsa, beans, black olives, diced green chilies, cheese and sour cream into separate bowls. Place fries in large bowl near meat mixture and toppings. Using heat-resistant ceramic plates, allow guests to create their own chili fries with meat and toppings. Hold back on the sour cream until after mixture has been broiled.
  4. Place ceramic plate under broiler about 4 minutes or until fries reheat and cheese melts. Top with sour cream, if desired. Serve immediately.
