Side dishes always seem to be the same ole, same ole here and I always look for different ideas. When I saw this recipe in Garfield, Recipes with Cattitude cookbook, I knew I had to try them. I try to keep potatoes on hand when I can because there are so many things you can do with a potato.
While the hubby was grilling burgers I got to work on these. Quick to throw together and into the oven they went. These were the perfect side and the kids enjoyed them. Short on time, use store bought frozen fries. If you are worried these will be spicy, they are not at all.
Baked Chili Fries
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
3 Tablespoons olive oil (vegetable oil works too)
3 baking potatoes, cut into wedges
Garnish: catsup, ranch dressing, or your favorite fry sauce
Mix seasonings in a large plastic zippered bag. Add oil and squeeze to mix; add potato wedges. Seal bag tightly; shake vigorously to coat potatoes well. Arrange potatoes on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, or until tender and golden. Make 4 to 6 servings.
**I didn't have aluminum foil or zippered bags but that did not stop me from making these. I am a firm believer in using what you have. I just added a little bit more oil on the pan before putting the potatoes on, to keep from sticking. I also added all ingredients into a big bowl and stirred them up instead of using a bag.
