Amarillo Cheese Fries and Dip - Like the Lone Star- Copycat

"When our DD and SIL came for a visit, they introduced us to two mouthwatering recipes which they prepared as a birthday treat. They prepared these fries along with Marinated Grilled Steaks, like The Outback. Needless to say, it was an absolutely delicious meal. Hope you enjoy this as much as we did."

    The dip was really the shining star here. You could probably use just about any french fry you like. I had several partial bags of cheese leftover and just dumped them on with a few jalapeno slices. Nice & easy alternative to ketchup!

    These are very tasty! I LOVE the sauce, it is very good on mexican food and burgers. I am thinking about making a jar of the sauce to have on hand for whatever! Thanks so much!

    The dip is brilliant. Don't know if I can ever go back to ketchup. The fries are pretty awesome, too.

    Fantastic recipe!!! Made these to go along with chili cheese dogs on Sunday for football. I used my deep fryer for the fries, then put them on baking sheet with cheese and bacon and broiled until the cheese melted. Yummy!! Thanks for the tasty keeper!


Hi, there! Thanks a bunch for stopping by. Before I tell you a little about myself, I'd like to start out with a GREAT BIG Thank You to all those who have taken the time to prepare, review and/or photograph my recipes. I wish I could thank each and every one of you personally, but without PM I'm unable to do so. Please know that your reviews and comments are very much appreciated! DH and I are semi-retired and loving it! The kids are grown and on their own, so we've got enough spare time to do the things we really love doing. We enjoy spending time with our four grandkids (pictured above), and also like camping, fishing and boating. As a hobby, we're into woodcrafting and participate in local craft shows and community fairs. We're also both active and involved in our church.
