Taco Bell in Puerto Rico sells papas supreme or supreme fries, a tasty concoction that is basically a beef taco over french fries for $1.29. Taco Bell in the United States does sell french fries, but only at select locations. None of them, at least to our knowledge sell papas supreme.
To recreate this zesty snack or brunch item, we decided to use beef taco filling, pico de gallo, sour cream and cheese smothered on top of store-bought french fries.
- 1 bag Ore Ida Crispy Crunchies- seasoned, battered fries
- 1 1/2 ground beef, 80% fat
- 3/4 C water
- 1 packet reduced sodium taco seasoning
- 5 Roma tomatoes, diced
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1/2 Vidalia onion, chopped
- a generous handful of cilantro, finely chopped
- 1 C sour cream
- 2 C shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a glass dish or on a cookie sheet, arrange the frozen french fries in a single layer. Bake for 30 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.
While the french fries bake, in a large skillet on medium high heat, sauté half of the onions in olive oil. Add the ground beef and stir to break up the clumps. After the beef has browned, drain the excess fat from the skillet. Add 3/4 C water and the taco seasoning. Simmer for 5-10 minutes.
To prepare the pico de gallo, combine the lemon juice, tomatoes, remaining onion and cilantro in a bowl.
Once the french fries are crisp, evenly sprinkle half the shredded cheese on top. Then layer the beef taco meat on next. Dollop on the sour cream and smooth it out. Plop on the pico de gallo and finish with the remaining cheese. Pop the tray back in the oven to melt the cheese. Serve immediately.
