  • Arrange waffle fries in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until light golden in color, 12 to 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, cook and stir ground beef in a large skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain excess grease. Stir in taco seasoning and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more.

  • Transfer baked fries to a 9x13-inch baking pan. Spread ground beef evenly over fries. Cover beef with cheese.

  • Return to the oven until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and garnish with tomatoes, olives, jalapenos, and lettuce. Dollop sour cream and guacamole on top.

Cook's Notes:

Use 1 cup chopped iceberg lettuce instead of romaine, if preferred.

Use jarred jalapenos if preferred.

This was a fun recipe to make and the waffle fries actually held up better than chips do. They can take a lot of weight so load them down and enjoy! Read More
