Texas Cheese Fries...SKINNY!!!

Pin It
I made the most delicious Texas Cheese Fries last night and they were low calorie and low fat!!  Can't beat that!! 

I found the original recipe on Pinterest from a site called Skinny Taste  I did change the recipe just a bit and will explain through the recipe!

Skinny Texas Cheese Fries

2 • Serving Size: 1/2 • Old Points: 6 pt • Points+: 7 pt
259 • Fat: 12.3 g • Protein: 10.1 g • Carb: 29 g • Fiber: 2.9 g • Sugar: 1.4 g
590.5 mg (without salt)

If you make the homemade low-fat buttermilk ranch ad 1 point plus or 52 calories.


  • 2 medium potatoes (2/3 lb total), yukon gold or russet, washed and dried (skin on)
  • 2 tsp olive oil I used canola cooking spray
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • coarse salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 slice center cut bacon, cooked & finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp diced scallions I used chives
  • 1 tbsp sliced pickled Jalapeno (jarred on canned) I used a ton of jalapenos


Preheat the oven to 400°. Line baking sheet with foil for easy clean-up. Lightly coat with cooking spray.
Cut each potato lengthwise into 1/4 inch thin slices; then cut each slice into 1/4 inch fries.
In a large bowl, combine cut potatoes and oil or cooking spray; toss well. Add seasonings. Toss to coat.
Place potatoes in a single layer on a lightly greased large baking sheet. Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes or until tender crisp, turning once half way through. 
Remove from oven, place fries into two small oven safe dishes (or one large dish for sharing), top with cheddar cheese, sliced jalapenos, scallions and bacon bits and return to oven for about 2 minutes, or until the cheese melts.

She also has a Low Fat Buttermilk Ranch, but we ate them just like they were and they were AWESOME!!!  I even lost a pound yesterday!!  ;)
