Are you, or were you ever a fan of Taco Bell's fries supreme? I know that I used to be, until the last few years (probably around 2008) when I noticed that the quality was no longer there. You used to get a fair serving of fries with a generous layer of cheese sauce, topped with a scoop of taco beef, a scoop of sour cream, and a sprinkling of diced tomatoes and green onions. Now the quality has gone so far down hill that you're lucky to get even a teaspoon on beef or sour cream, and you might get 3 pieces of diced tomato, and if you're lucky, you get a small sprinkle of freeze-dried chives (not even green onion anymore).
With all that being said, I find that many people that I have asked agree with me that it isn't even worth getting a fries supreme from Taco Bell anymore, especially because when you do you are just completely disappointed. So why not make your own fries supreme at home?!
frozen fries (or homemade if you wish)
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 pkg. of taco seasoning
1 jar of queso cheese sauce, heated
green onion, chopped
Preheat oven and cook fries as directed on the packaging.
Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, brown ground beef oven medium-high heat.
Once beef is browned, add the taco seasoning mix and 1/4 cup of water. Simmer until mixture has thickened, then remove from heat and set aside.
Remove lid from queso cheese sauce and heat in the microwave until warm (1-2 minutes, depending on your microwave).
Once the fries are done, place them on a platter (or individual plates), and top with the warmed cheese sauce, taco beef, and sour cream. Sprinkle the top with chopped tomatoes and green onions.
Now serve & enjoy!
I can guarantee you that you will not be disappointed with this recipe, especially compared to what you would get these days from Taco Bell.
