I felt like the queen of leftovers last week. The biscuits that I made over the weekend used up the sour cream and some of the cheddar from our recent party, and these chili cheese fries were a great way to use up some extra beans and cheese. Graham and I liked the chili cheese fries so much that I made another batch with the sweet potatoes that we just got in our CSA box. I think these fries might become a staple in our house and not just a way to use up leftovers.
Sweet Potato Chili Cheese Fries
I used this recipe to make the baked sweet potato fries and this black bean recipe (I did add a little extra chili powder to the beans). MJ also has a great recipe for black beans on her site, MJ’s Kitchen.
To assemble the chili cheese fries, smother the fries with black beans and top with grated cheddar cheese.

Three Easy Chairs (Average Difficulty)
|If you make the black beans from scratch this recipe will take a little longer, and there is some prep time involved in peeling and cutting up the sweet potatoes. To make it really simple you could add some spices to a can of black beans and put it on top of a baked sweet potato.|
