Spicy baked chips

    30 min

    This recipe really spices up a bag of frozen chips! Not healthy but at least you bake and not fry them. Feel free to change the amount of cayenne and chilli powder depending on your taste.

    I thought these were great! After reading the other reviews I only made one small change in that I used less butter than called for, and instead of using little pats, I melted in first, tossed the seasonings in with the butter, and drizzled it on top of the fries before baking. It turned out perfectly. Nothing was soggy or greasy, and the fries crisped up beautifully.  -  24 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were very good. I personally like a lot of spice in my food. When I was making this it occurred to me that there was a LOT of seasoning going over the fries. However, you have to remember that heat will actually "kill" some of the flavor so it is not as bad as you think. My whole family really liked this. I only used 1 tablespoon of red pepper and some of the family still thought it was a little hot. Personally i didnt think so. I will be making these again. Very nice flavor. Just tweak the "heat" to your own liking.  -  19 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    1/4 cup butter is too much - the fries were swimming in oil. I would use 2 tbsp. and up the temp. to 450 degrees - I left them in the oven for almost an hour to crisp them at 425, but have to watch so nothing burns. The taste was great tho and even better the next day when I could make them really crispy. Make sure they are spread in one layer too.  -  09 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
