I must confess I have never had poutine before.  I have to be careful about consuming cheese and I am not a fan of cheese curds.  This variation was a hit and I will definitely be creating some more in the future.  I was pleasantly surprised at how good and satisfying a poutine can be!

To start making the poutine I put a bag of crinkle cut french fries in my actifry to cook.  You can cook them in the oven or deep fryer if you do not have  an actifry.

Next I poured some olive oil into a large frying pan and turned the heat to medium.  Once heated I added 1 pound of lean ground beef to the pan. 

While the ground beef was cooking I put 2 cups of water and 2 packages of gluten free brown gravy mix into a small sauce pan over medium heat.  I stirred it occasionally while cooking the beef.

Then I sliced up half a yellow onion and added it to the ground beef in the frying pan.

I made sure to break up the ground beef while it was cooking.  

When it was browned I added in 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning and some water.

I stirred until all the beef was coated in the seasoning.

After the gravy bubbled and thickened I turned the heat down to simmer.  I also turned the ground beef mixture down to a simmer.

After letting both simmer for about 5 minutes I was ready to assemble the poutine.

For this Tex Mex Poutine I put a layer of fries on a serving plate, followed by some of the ground beef mixture, a layer of Tex Mex shredded cheese, and finally I poured gravy over the top of the other layered ingredients.

Tex Mex Poutine is my first exposure to this popular comfort food and it was quickly devoured by my family.  I am looking forward to experimenting with other Poutine variations.

Tex Mex Poutine is perfect as an easy dinner or party snack. These French fries are loaded with ground beef, gravy, taco seasoning and shredded cheese.
