1 pound Ore-Ida Extra Crispy Frozen Fast Food Fries
vegetable oil for frying
1 tablespoon salted butter
1/2 cup whole milk
8 ounces American cheese
1 tablespoon Tobasco Jalapeno sauce or juice from a jar of jalapeno slices for nachos
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon chili powder like McCormick’s
1 teaspoon garlic powder do not use garlic salt
1 teaspoon onion powder do not use onion salt
If you have a spice grinder or a mini food processor, process spices to grind them more finely, if not, skip this step. Store spice blend in a salt shaker or another shaker. You will have some left over, you can use this for tacos, or another batch of fries.
Combine all ingredients in a small pot, heat on low until the cheese melts, stir to combine.

Fill a large pot with enough vegetable oil to fill the pot 4 inches deep. Heat the oil to 350 degrees.
