Chili Fries with Shrimp

Cravings, craving, cravings...... What causes them? I don't really know, what I do know, whatever I'm craving needs to get in my belly.....quickly.

Last night I got one of those pesky cravings for chili fries....... as a result, I present the following recipe....


1 large white onion, peeled and chunky diced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chunky diced
16 oz. can of pinto beans
16 oz. can of kidney beans
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 packet hot chili seasoning
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
3/4 c. ketchup
2 tsp. hot sauce of choice (I used Tapatio)
1 1/2 c. frozen corn
12 frozen, precooked shrimp, thawed 
22 oz. bag of frozen fries (I used Arby's curly fries)

  1. For the fries: preheat oven to 450 degrees and place them in a single layer on a sheet pan and bake for 18 minutes.
  2. In a large pot over high heat ass olive oil and onions.
  3. Cook onions until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add bell pepper, cook until barely tender, about 5 minutes.
  5. Next, the shrimp: place them in a small colander in a sink of cold water, they will thaw in about 10 minutes,
  6. Now, add all seasoning, including hot chili packet, to the onions and peppers. 
  7. Strain liquid from both cans of beans, add them to the pot along with the hot sauce and ketchup.
  8. Next, add the shrimp. They do not need to be cooked, just warmed through while simmering in the chili.
  9. The final step: remove fries from oven, plate, top with chili and eat!

This is super hearty meal and is a great for a cold night. 12 shrimp is enough for two people and you will definitely have leftover chili.

Feel free to add more shrimp according to the number of people you are serving, You may also substitute the shrimp with: chicken, pork or beef.

Hope you enjoy it!!!
