French Fries


  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 28oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Nacho Cheese


  1. Chili: In a large pot, heat the oil and onion. Sauté for 3-5 minutes or until onion is translucent. Add minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add diced tomatoes, kidney beans, black beans, chili powder, coconut sugar, cumin, smoked paprika, and salt. Mix to combine. Bring ingredients to a rapid boil, then reduce heat and simmer (partially covered) for 35-45 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  2. Fries: While the chili is cooking, prepare the french fries. Use frozen fries and follow the package instructions, or follow the homemade french fries recipe here.
  3. Nacho cheese: While the chili and fries are cooking, prepare the nacho cheese. Follow the recipe here.
  4. Assemble: Divide baked french fries onto serving plates. Cover fries with the chili and drizzle the nacho cheese sauce on top. For garnish, add cilantro or diced jalapeño. Enjoy!
