GF/CF/SF chili-cheese fries

Bet you didn't think this was possible on a gluten-free, casein-free diet. Well, it is possible, and even without soy too. For my money, the soy-based cheeses are really bad.

So, how do you do this? You can grab everything in one trip to Whole Foods.

-- French fries: either Whole Foods' 365 brand or Cascadian Farms brand.
-- Chili: Amy's brand chili is OK.
-- Cheese: Galaxy brand rice cheese (yes, the slices are casein-free, not just lactose free -- be careful because the bricks are not casein-free). They sell sliced pepper-jack, american and cheddar. The pepper jack adds some zip to this.

So, toss the fries in the oven for 10 mins, then turn them over. Bake another 5 mins.
Spread the chili over top and bake another 3 mins. Add the cheese with about 1 minute left. I cut this up into smaller pieces and toss over top.

There you go.

You could also add some salsa to this if your kids like it -- plain Tostitos brand salsas are OK and so is Muir Glen brand, among others.

Thanks so much for this post. I had looked at rice cheese but was disappointed to see it was not casein free, I will have to look for the slices! I just started a blog of my experiences with GFCF at http://glutenisforchumps.blogspot.com/ and often reference your recipes. This is the best resource I have found so far!
