Four Bean Chili Baked Fries

If you've been tuning in everyday for my latest 5-in-1 recipe series, you may be saying to yourself, "what else could we possibly do with that leftover Four Bean Chili?". My answer_ a lot.

Seriously, what's more delicious than french fries and chili? Possibly Chili Mac and Cheese, but I would say it's a toss up! At first glance, this recipe may not seem that healthy, but it is. Rather than making oil-laden french fries, I opt for this baked version which produces "fries" that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Topped with a serving of warm chili, it's unbelievably delicious.
