Condiments such as ketchup, ranch dressing, vinegar, mayonnaise, honey mustard, cheese, and many more complement French fries. Other than condiments, chefs like to sprinkle seasonings to add flavor and spice to their fries. Other things to add to a plate of fries could be a little garlic and onion powder. Spice them up cajun style or top them with chili, nacho cheese, and jalapeños.
