Chorizo Poutine

  • 6 ounces of French fries
  • 3 ounces of chorizo
  • 2 ounces of cheese curd
  • 3 ounces of chicken gravy
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Scallions for garnish- chopped


  1. Being careful and using a candy thermometer, bring a pot half way full of oil, to 350 degrees.
  2. Carefully place the fries in the oil and cook until golden brown.
  3. Remove from oil and toss with salt and pepper in a bowl.
  4. While waiting for the fries to cook, cook chorizo until fully cooked, while breaking it
  5. up into pieces. Also warm up some chicken gravy in another pan. Once the fries are done place them in a serving bowl and sprinkle first the cheese curds on them followed by the chorizo and lastly the chicken gravy, along with the hot fries this should help melt the cheese curds which is the desired outcome.
  6. Garnish with scallions if you choose too.
