Cheeseburger and Fry Casserole

I found an article recently about people combining their foods and so I thought about cheeseburgers and french fries and this is what I got.  I threw this together very quickly and it tasted delicious!
1 lbs hamburger
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder or 2 garlic cloves, chopped finely
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 jar Ragu cheese sauce
1 (16 ounce) package frozen french fries or 1 (16 ounce) package tater tots (I made my own fries...  I don't do frozen :-) )
1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Brown hamburger with onions and cloves of garlic if using until no longer pink and onions and garlic are translucent.
Drain grease.
Season meat with salt, pepper and garlic powder (if using instead).
Return meat to the heat and stir in cheese sauce.
Heat through until bubbly.
Season with cajun seasoning.
Spray a 9x13 cake pan with cooking spray and place meat mixture in the bottom of the pan and spread it out evenly. 
Cover the meat mixture with the frozen french fries in an even layer.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until the french fries are golden brown or if using tator tots until they are golden brown.
Remove from oven and sprinkle the top with the cheese.
Return to oven until cheese is melted. (I leave until cheese starts to get brown).
