Spicy Oven Fries

6 Dec

We love ‘snack’ food and finger foods and really love making healthier and organic versions of some of our favorites.  Our most popular transformation is the ‘California Hot Wing’ recipe that has our readers grilling chicken wings instead of frying them, and dipping them in guacamole rather than thick blue cheese dressing.

This week we cheered on some of our favorite football teams while snacking on Spicy Oven Fries a great alternative to the traditionally deep fried snack with a flavorful, spicy kick!  We think if you Eat It… You’ll Like It!

Spicy Oven Fries
Preheat your oven to 425º  and line a cookie sheet with tin foil

5 large potatoes or 10 small potatoes, Sliced or cut into wedges and set aside

In a large bowl combine the following:

4 tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon of Chili Powder
1/2 Teaspoon of each:
– Cumin
– Paprika
– Onion Powder
– Granulated Garlic
– Kosher Salt
1/4 Teaspoon of each:
– Cayenne Pepper
– Black Pepper

Add the sliced potatoes to the bowl and mix until well coated.

Spread the potatoes out on the cookie sheet and place in the oven.
Cook for 30-45 minutes, tossing or mixing the potatoes every 20 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked through, and some have crunch.  We always have to taste test to be sure!
