Smoky Cheese Fries

I don't know about you, but there is just something about football games that screams for cheesy fries!  These pack some heat with the added chipotles, so adjust the flavors as you see fit.  Try different cheeses to your liking.  Season the fries, or even try different cuts of fry to sop up as much of the sauce as your little heart desires.  Just make sure to keep it one likes cold cheese...or cold fries!

1 large pacakge frozen waffle fries
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 cups milk
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 chipotles in adobo, plus 1 to 2 tablespoons adobo sauce

Preheat the oven and bake the fries according to package directions.

Melt the butter in a small pot over medium heat.  Stir in the flour to make a roux.  Add the tomato paste, stirring to combine.  Whisk in the milk.  When the milk begins to bubble and thicken, add the cheese, chipotles, and adobo sauce.  Season with salt.

Serve the fries piping hot with a bowl of the hot cheese dip on the side.
