How to Make Nacho Fries

Start by laying your fries on a baking sheet and cook as directed on the package.

When you remove your fries from the oven, sprinkle them with seasoned salt and toss them so they are fully coated.

Next, while your fries are baking, cook your ground beef and onion in a skillet until your onion is soft and there isn’t any pink left on your pink.

Next, add in your taco seasoning and salsa and mix to combine.

Now, when your fries are done, add a layer of shredded cheese, top with your ground beef mixture, and then add another layer of shredded cheese.

Then, place your fries back into your oven so your cheese can melt. Finally, serve immediately with all of your favorite toppings! For reference, I listed several optional toppings that I like. Top with guacamole, salsa, jalapenos, and more!
