Healthier Ways to Satisfy Cravings

I've been craving chili cheese fries. Real healthy, huh LOL So here was my attempt at a healthier way to satisfy the craving...

Cooked bag of frozen steak fries using oven directions (put OO no stick spray on the cookie sheet and misted the top of them with it as well). I always add 3-5 minutes under the broiler to help them crisp up (why I mist the tops with OO spray).

While fries were baking, browned 93/7 ground beef. Seasoned with onion powder and chili powder. Mixed in some reduced-fat cheddar until melted.

Topped individual servings of fries with a good bit of the ground beef mixture. Sour cream on the side for dipping.

The verdict?

Satisfied my craving :D
Ethan tasted it and said, "You've never made this for me before!" in an accusing tone. Like I had been holding out on him LOL
Jesse thought it was yummy.
Gabriel ate mostly fries but some of the meat/cheese mixture as well.

I think it was a success!!!
