Life-Changing Chili Cheese Fries [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan





  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 can kidney beans, drained
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Juice of half a lime


  • 1 pound of potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon macadamia oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning (optional)

Cheese Sauce:

Extra Optional Toppings:

  • Avocado
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Extra fresh lime juice


  1. Start by making your chili. Heat your coconut oil and add the onions, garlic, and spices. Sauté on medium until onions almost cooked, about five minutes. Add in your carrots and tomato paste and cook for another five minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add your beans and tomatoes, salt, pepper, and lime juice and stir. Reduce the heat to low-medium and let simmer, covered, for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally. You don’t want it to be too watery, so if at the end it’s not thick enough simply cook on low for another 10 minutes without a lid.
  3. In the meantime start preparing your fries. Pre-heat your oven to 395ºF and line two baking trays with baking parchment and place in the oven.
  4. Chop your potatoes into fries, you don’t have to bother with peeling if you want the skin. Add some water to a steamer pan, bring to a boil, place a steamer basket over the pan and add your fries. Cover and steam for five minutes, just until the fries are glistening and slightly cooked but not soft. You should be able to pierce it with a fork, but it shouldn’t be too easy for the fork to come out. If in doubt, it’s best to under-cook at this stage.
  5. Remove the steamed fries and carefully pat them dry with some paper towel. Add them to a large bowl with your macadamia oil and a generous sprinkle of salt, pepper, and your Cajun seasoning, if using.
  6. Transfer the fries to your baking sheets, making sure the fries are well spread and not touching.
  7. Add to your oven and bake for 20 minutes, flipping the fries once halfway through. Remove your fries from the oven, and let cool for about 10 minutes so they can crisp up a bit more.
  8. Once fries are nice and crispy and the chili is done cooking, add all of the fries to one of the lined baking trays, plop a generous serving of your chili on top (you might not need all of it), generously spoon the cheese sauce, and place back in the oven in broiler mode for another 2-3 minutes, just so it all sizzles and bubbles together.
  9. Remove from the oven, top with any extras, squeeze some lime, and serve!
