Chipotle Ranch Fries

Favorite Trader Joe’s Item #23: Chipotle Ranch Fries

The other night I came home from work and craved a hearty meal. The cold weather mixed with the chaotic day battling spreadsheets warranted something REALLY comforting. I decided to make Casey & I a steak with fries and a salad.

One of my friends told me about these Chipotle fries a few weeks ago- so I HAD to pick some up. Don’t be turned off by the Chipotle- it comes in a package that you can use/not use if you feel the inclination.

I put the fries on a baking sheet lined with foil & cooking spray (because I don’t like having to spend a lot of time cleaning my baking sheets!)

I heated up the Chipotle sauce by soaking the package in HOT water. The directions recommend dumping the entire packet all over the fries, but I’m just not that into soggy fries. Who wants to eat soggy fries with a fork? Not this girl!

The sauce is pretty good by the way. It’s like a tangy BBQ sauce.

Here are the golden babies after I took them out of the oven:

i'll take you, you you and YOU
I have to say that they were delicious! They tasted a lot like Burger King fries–but substantially larger. I would keep these in my freezer all the time….but due to my carb addiction, I will restrain myself from stocking up! I can never be trusted near french fries. I clearly do not have THAT much discipline.

The all-around comforting meal. Everything on the plate came from Trader Joes:
