Lone Star State Fries

Lone Star State Fries are big and spicy, just like Texas, the Lone Star State. Serves: 4

Ingredients: 1 tablespoon paprika, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon salt, divided, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 6 potatoes (about 2-1/2 pounds), with skin on, 2 tablespoons peanut oil


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine paprika, chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Seal bag and shake to mix.

Cut each potato in half then each half into 4 flat wedges. Add peanut oil and potatoes to seasoning in bag then close tightly and shake to coat well.

Spread potatoes in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until fork-tender. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and serve immediately.

Notes: Sure, you can peel the potatoes if you want, but we like the extra crunchiness of the skin. Besides, the skin is good for us!
