Mexican Poutine | Sweet Potato Fries with Chorizo and Queso Fresco

Author Rebecca Lindamood

Ingredients

  • 1 bag frozen good quality sweet potato fries or a large batch Homemade Guaranteed Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries
  • 1 pound chorizo preferably homemade
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbled Queso Fresco or Queso Blanco or shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese if either of those is unavailable
  • Optional: salsa and chopped cilantro, to taste

Instructions

  • Bake the frozen sweet potato fries according to package directions. While they bake, break up the chorizo in a hot skillet over medium to medium high heat. Stir while cooking and continue breaking it up with a spoon.
    Fry the chorizo, stirring frequently, until it is fully cooked and has taken on some deep brown, crispy areas.
    As soon as the fries come out of the oven, use tongs to transfer them to a serving plate, use a spoon (use a slotted one if your chorizo is very greasy) to pile the hot chorizo on top of the fries. Scatter the crumbled cheese over the top. If using the salsa and cilantro, add immediately before serving.
