Vegan Chili Spiced “Cheese” Fries

It is so rare that I want any potato that isn’t a sweet potato these days, but as a teenager I think I managed to survive 60% of the time off of potatoes… man, have times changed! And by times, I mean my eating habits.

These chili spiced cheese fries are so delicious and the perfect side for my veggies burgers (recipe in my meal prep guide) which is how I served them. It was so delicious! I love cutting my fries into thick wedges, but you could do them smaller to reduce cooking time and they would still be frickin delightful!
