Robin Miller's Cheese Fries

Here's a recipe from Quick Fix Meals from Robin Miller that we actually enjoyed. I've already blogged about the Pulled Cuban Chicken Wraps before over here. While we did like the Pulled Cuban Chicken Wraps a lot, I did find it odd to pair it with Cheese Fries. But hey, why shouldn't cheese fries go with everything? The fries were good. (Of course they are. Why wouldn't they be? Cheese, bacon. Isn't that the definition of "good"?) But I had problems with getting the cheese to stay on the wedge-shaped fries. Maybe I made my wedges too big? Dunno. But they were delish!

Pulled Cuban Chicken Wraps And Cheese Fries With Turkey Bacon

Recipe Courtesy of Robin Miller

4 slices turkey bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled (4 to 6)
Reserved roasted potato wedges
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup sliced red onions
4 reserved roasted chicken breast halves
1 cup prepared salsa
1/3 cup prepared ranch dip
4 spinach tortillas, (8-inch)

Arrange potatoes on a large, foil-lined baking sheet. Top with cheese and bacon pieces. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until cheese melts. Using two forks, pull chicken apart into shreds. Set aside.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute 3 minutes, until soft. Add chicken and salsa and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in ranch dip.

Arrange tortillas on a flat surface. Top with chicken mixture and roll up. Serve with cheese fries on the side.

I don't know how anyone in your family is not 500 lbs judging by the stuff I see you posting here.

Just an observation, but without any details on calories, fat content etc., its kind of hard to tell, although I know I wouldnt in my right mind eat all the carbs.

We're pretty lucky. We all do endurance sports like half marathons, triathlons, cross country, biking. We burn through a lot of calories and have to have a lot of carbs to maintain that.
