Really Loaded Nacho Fries


1 (22-ounce) package frozen waffle fries
1 pound ground beef
1 (1-ounce) package taco seasoning mix
1 (16-ounce) can refried beans
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend
1 (2-1/4-ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
3/4 cup salsa
1/2 cup sour cream
1 scallion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place waffle fries in a single layer on baking sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until crispy.
2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown ground beef 7 to 10 minutes or until no pink remains, stirring occasionally to crumble. Drain excess liquid. Stir in taco seasoning and refried beans. Cook 3 to 5 additional minutes or until thoroughly heated.
3. Spoon mixture over fries, then top with cheese, olives, and chilies.
4. Return to oven 4 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and top with salsa, sour cream, scallion, and cilantro. Serve immediately.
