Guinness and Black Bean Chili Loaded Spiralized Fries

Guinness and Black Bean Chili Loaded Spiralized Fries are a fun and festive dish perfect as an appetizer or hearty enough for dinner! 

We are diving straight in.

To every single thing that March has to offer: March Madness, St.Patrick’s Day, Easter, Spring Break, and Daylight Savings. Come to think of it, I guess I didn’t realize all the things that take place in March. Maybe it’s because March has 31 days? Or that the weather is nicer? Whatever the reason, we are going all in.

In my monthly newsletter that went out on Saturday (by the way, if you don’t subscribe to my monthly newsletter I highly suggest you do. I talk about all sorts of fun things and mention any news updates about CGM before it hits mainstream). You can subscribe here.

Okay, where was I? Yes, the topic of my newsletter. I talked about some seriously delicious recipes coming at ya hard core this month and it starts with these Guinness and Black Bean Chili Loaded Spiralized Fries. I might be on a bit of a Guinness kick so brace yourself.

What I love most about this recipe is you can make it ahead of time. The Guinness and Black Bean Chili is made in the slow cooker which is a total breeze. The sprialized fries take a hot second to make, but is great distraction for when your team is down and you need to focus your cheering energy elsewhere.

Once you’ve got everything assembled, you know the drill. Pile everything together, top with cheese, and broil until golden brown. Isn’t this the best way to start March? I think so. Just don’t ask me this after this Sunday. Why must Daylight Savings be so difficult? Pass the fries.
