Most people might think of steak fries as a thing to go with steak. Not so. Well, not completely so, anyway. Steak fries also make a fantastic appetizer or party food, as long as you have a great dip to dip em into. This Veracruz Ranch dip is a perfect choice because it’s chunky and zesty and stands up well to hearty oven-roasted steak fries. I think this dip would also go well with thick-cut potato chips (and between you and me, I’ve been using the leftover dip as a sandwich spread.) Likewise, the steak fries could partner up with many other dips such as this homemade French Onion dip.
Steak Fries recipe with Veracruz Ranch Dip
This recipe makes about 3 cups of dip and about 4 servings worth of steak fries. For a large group, double or triple the steak fries, but no need to make more dip.Print

I’m gonna try these!
Can’t wait to try these. They look amazing!
Thanks, Jillian! Send me a picture of your fries if you think about it!
Hi Hilah! I’ve tried many times to bake fries, but they never get crispy enough, but these look amazing! I have a question though: can I prep these ahead of time and put them in the oven after work? Or will they get greasy?
Hi Molly! I think that would work fine to cut and oil and season the fries ahead of time.
Hi Molly, I had the same problem and stumbled upon the following trick somewhere: if you cook the potatoe pieces in water just for 6-8min before you put them into the oven, they will become much more crispy.
I tried it and now they are just as I wanted them to be.
Hi Hilah, I just made your steak fries and loved them. They tasted exactly the way you described them, crunchy on the
outside and creamy on the inside. Yum yum yum good.
Thank you for a great recipe.
So glad to hear, Wayne!
