Southwestern Cheddar Steak Fries are seasoned roasted potatoes topped with cheese, red pepper and cilantro. A delicious side dish for any meal!
It’s not often I get a craving for a potato. If you want to know how I feel about potatoes most of the time…just ask my Aunt Marlene. I’m sure she would get a kick out of telling you how she found my mashed potatoes one Christmas day – on the floor behind her garbage can. (wearing a “who me”? face!)
