Crispy fries with a delicious homemade deer chili and melted cheese drizzled over the top. Yum, yum!
Have you ever had chili cheese fries? How about deer chili cheese fries? Most people haven’t. It’s one of my favorite comfort foods. I can make a complete meal out of them myself.
I remember the first time I had chili cheese fries. I bought them at Sonic Drive-In and I have been hooked ever since. Then the Sonic in our neighborhood closed, so I decided to create my own recipe and of course I had to try it with venison chili.
Boy, did I make a bunch of teenagers happy! They love it and if I don’t make it at least once a month I hear about it. They request it–no, they demand it! I think they go through withdrawals if they go a long time without it.
Feel free to print our recipe card:
Some people like to top their Deer Chili Cheese Fries with fresh cut green onions, olives, jalapenos, sour cream, or salsa. Another recipe idea is to use tortilla chips or corn chips instead of fries. Yummy!

Please see my Venison Hot Dog Chili Recipes page for our chili recipes. This time I used the Creamy Venison Hot Dog Chili recipe, but I’ve tried all of the recipes with it and they all work well, but if you want to use your own deer chili recipe I’m sure it will be just as good.
I won’t be adding nutrition facts to this recipe for the simple fact that I don’t know the type of fries or which chili recipe you’ll use. It is just too complicated, but I won’t leave you hanging. Go to myfitnesspal.com and enter in the ingredients that you are using and let them calculate it for you. It’s really easy! I will, however, share with you some diet-friendly tips.
To make this recipe more diet-friendly…
- To help lower the cholesterol and fat use less fat in your ground venison burger. If your burger has less fat this recipe will also have less fat and cholesterol. You can use ground venison that has no fat added and it will be just as delicious!
- Also use healthier shredded cheddar cheese instead of the cheese block the recipe calls for, which is a heavily pasteurized cheese product. This will help cut down on a lot of fat, cholesterol, calories, sodium, carbs, and sugar. Also, use almond milk instead of whole milk.
- To help cut the sugar and sodium even further, use sugar-free and no salt added ingredients in the chili.
- Bake the fries instead of frying them in a deep fryer and do not use any oil or excess salt.
