Prep Time: 25 mins
Cook Time: 3 mins
2 pounds baking potatoes, washed & scrubbed (about 4-5 medium potatoes)
1 Tbsp. Fiesta Brand® Cajun-All Seasoning
1 ½ tsp. Fiesta Brand® Paprika
1 ½ tsp. Fiesta Brand® Garlic Powder
1 ½ tsp. Fiesta Brand® Onion powder
Slice potatoes thinly (about 1/16”) and place in a large bowl of ice water. Let sit for at least 20 minutes. Drain the potato slices and dry thoroughly on paper towels. If the potatoes are wet they will splatter and pop.
Combine the Cajun seasoning, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder. Mix well and set aside.
In a Dutch over, pour about 2 inches of oil and heat to 350 degrees. Fry the potato slices in small batches for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Remove the potato slices and drain on a sheet pan lined with paper towels. Immediately sprinkle the seasoning over the hot chips. Repeat until all the chips are fried. Store in a covered container at room temperature.
Note: For the best results, use a slicer, food processor or mandoline for slicing the potatoes. Cooking time will vary based on the thickness of the potato slices. As the chips brown remove them from the oil to prevent burning.
