French fries AND chili? Sign us up. There are a lot of chili cheese fries recipes out there, but this one’s the best—and not only because it’s made with Impossible™ Beef Made From Plants. Between the flavorful spices, fresh scallions, and sour cream topping, every bite is heaven.

The secret to the perfect chili is in the simmer. In fact, most of the prep time for this dish is spent letting your chili simmer on the stove to bring out all the delicious flavors. Pro tip: don’t over-simmer, as it can dry out the chili. Hone your multitasking skills by popping the fries in the oven while the chili cooks on the stove.

If your memory of Chili Cheese Fries is the blob you bought in a paper cup at a Little League concession stand or picked up from a fast food place on the way home, you are in for a treat with this recipe. First of all, these are loaded with flavor—and not the kind that comes from too much chile powder or a giant can of soupy tomato sauce. This recipe gives you a fresh and tangy chili that melds great with Impossible Beef and melted cheese.

This dish is fitting for any season, but it’s especially perfect for a cozy afternoon or evening in the fall and winter. Bonus points if it’s snowing outside! Use it as a staple during the holiday season when you’re craving yummy, warm, comforting food. It’s also the perfect appetizer for game night. Don’t be afraid to double up on the recipe to save and reheat for later.
