Taco Fries W/ Sofritas and Cheese Sauce
The only thing better than taco night, is taco week! We’ve made a lot of taco dishes in the past. Most recently Mexican style Mac and Cheese so we decided to keep with our taco theme and share these AMAZING Taco Fries with you! These have quickly become our favorite food in the whole world and we’re positive you’ll become addicted too!
Taco Fries we’re born out of a recent obsession with Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream (it seriously is better, don’t ask us how they did it, but they did!). We were loving the creamy texture and started making tons of dips and sauces for our french fries! Eventually that let to adding it on top of our fries, and an idea was born!
In creating this recipe we really tried to focus on key flavors and the mouth feel you would get from a taco! So we put on our thinking caps and thought “what is the perfect taco?” the truth is the answer is different for everyone. So even though we think ours is absolutely perfect, feel free to make substitutions, cooking is all about creativity! We stared with a base of crispy fries, seasoned with a little salt. Then we piled on the our homemade Sofrita, if you’re not familiar with this Chipotle classic, its essentially a spicy tofu crumble.
So now that we had the “meat” we had to pick a “cheese”. Luckily, It didn’t take long to pick! Our favorite cheese sauce was the clear choice. We use this sauce for everything, so we just added some jalapenos to give it the taco feel and generously poured it on. After all our french fries, sofrita, cheese, we thought MAYBE it was time for a couple vegetables. So we threw on some Pico de Gallo and homemade Guacamole. Which really brings a freshness to this carbohydrate heavy dish. Even though most people might think this dish is creamy enough, we aren’t most people. So we loaded on the Tofutti sour cream and really had a night of beautiful Taco Fries indulgence.
These fries are seriously so good, they are absolutely everything you could want in a meal. Taco Fries are so crunchy, creamy, savory, salty and everything in between! Because of how creamy we like our toppings, we love to deep fry our fries for this recipe, to make them extra crispy, but honesty an oven works fine and gives you that soft fluffy potato texture!
We know you’ll love this recipe as much as we do, its seriously our favorite food and we’re SO excited to hear your feed back! Let us know in the comments below!
