Ingredients Needed for Loaded Taco Fries

Russet Potatoes – You will need 3-4 large russet potatoes for this recipe. Be sure to wash the potatoes and cut them into evenly sized fries. Rinse them with cold water and pat them dry. Option to leave the skin on. Add them to a large mixing bowl.

Taco Seasoning – You will need one pouch of taco seasoning for this recipe. Add it to the fries, making sure they are all well coated.

Olive Oil – Add the fries to a baking tray and toss them with olive oil before baking.

Chicken – Boil either chicken breasts or tenderloins in hot water. Once they reach 165 degrees remove them from the water. Using two forks shred the meat and set it aside.

Cheese – I used shredded cheddar cheese for this recipe, but you can use any cheese you enjoy most.

Lime Crema – Be sure to make a simple lime crema to drizzle over the loaded fries. It’s sour cream, lime zest, lime juice, garlic and salt. Mix until well combined.

Toppings – You can use any toppings you desire, but I used shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, diced jalapeno, diced black olives, avocado, and cilantro.
