Just another example of Weird Southern Cuisine (and related to the french
fries/hot chips/crisps thing)...

I went to school in Texas, which is sort of a blend of Southern (i.e.
south-east) and Western traditions.  One of the foods the cafeteria served
was cheese fries--fried potatoes smothered in cheese sauce.  Chili and
jalapeno peppers were optional.  Apparently Southerners, even in Texas, will
eat anything.
