Guy Fieri Recipe | “Grown Ups” Chili With Fries

chili2

This is most definitely my favorite Guy Fieri recipe. Not because it tastes amazing (although it’s pretty yummy for a standard chili recipe), but because it’s a chili based on the movie Grown Ups 2. I’m pretty sure Guy Fieri and whatever garbage Adam Sandler is currently slinging are the perfect match, and Fieri’s recipe is ridiculous. There’s a bunch of meat and beer in it and you’re suppose to serve it over french fries. Also I’m pretty sure that sentence describes every Guy Fieri recipe ever.

However, this chili is good! Probably not a great summer recipe, though. I had a big ol’ pot of simmering chili on the stove in 90 degree heat and it made the apartment feel horrible, but smell delicious. I didn’t make my own french fries, but instead served mine over frozen waffle fries that I heated up in the over. Bro vegan!

Guy Fieri Recipe | Vegan Irish Nachos

I have to be honest, I wasn’t all too excited about this recipe. I didn’t really know what irish nachos were and I’ve never had actual corned beef before, so I wasn’t really sure how it would taste or what to expect. I didn’t want to go through the trouble of making corned seitan only to eat around it (“Dear god I hope this doesn’t taste like pumpkin pie” floated through my head after I saw the spice combo). I combined this recipe from Vegan Dad and this recipe from Inspired Vegan Eats to make my corned seitan, mainly because I had no prior experience with corned beef and wanted to make sure this was done right.

In Guy Fieri’s recipe, he melts shredded cheddar cheese on top of his corned beef-topped waffle fries, but I didn’t want to do this with vegan cheese. My vegan cheese of choice is almost always Daiya (shout-outs to Follow Your Heart’s “Mozzarella” and Nacho-flavored Teese), and I knew I’d be using it in this recipe. But I’ve always thought making nachos with melted shredded cheese was kind of a cop-out. It’s bro food. It’s what you make if you’re stuck in a college dorm with a microwave and a mini fridge, and folks, I’m a little past my prime for that. While searching for photos of Fieri’s Irish Nachos, I found this recipe for Rachael Ray’s Irish Nachos (Does everyone at Food Network make Irish Nachos? Is this a thing?), and she made a beer cheese sauce for hers.

Guys, I made vegan beer cheese sauce. And it was so amazing.

Ultimately, these nachos were really, really good. As in, go to the store after you read this and make them for your next meal. I don’t care if it’s breakfast. The sauce was perfect, the seitan was flavorful and tender and all of the toppings rounded everything out. I suggest making the seitan ahead of time to save your sanity.

Here’s the recipe:
