This basic recipe for oil-free chili roasted Russet potato fries is a must-have for healthy eating.  What’s the trick to crispy fries that don’t get stuck to the pan? Parchment paper.  Make a batch of these on the weekend and enjoy with Portobello Mushroom Burgers and Apple-Sweet Chipotle Ketchup.

Ingredients

  • 4 small Russet potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

How it’s Done

Preheat your oven to 375F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

To make the Chili Roasted Oil-Free Russet Potato Fries: While the oven heats up, prepare your potatoes.  Scrub the potatoes. Cut into planks, about 1/2-inch thick.  Cut the planks into batons (aka “fries”), about 1/2-inch thick.

Toss the fries with the chili powder.  Season with salt and pepper.  Spread into a single layer on the pre-lined baking sheet.

Bake for 25 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes.  Turn up the heat to 425F and roast 5-7 more minutes, until crispy around the edges.

Enjoy with Portobello Mushroom Burgers and Apple-Sweet Chipotle Ketchup.

Yield: About 6 cups

Chef Katie’s Tips:

Crispy Convection: If you have a convection setting on your oven, use it. “Convection” just means “fan”. This will give you better air circulation for crispier fries.

Single Layer Only: Be sure not to overcrowd your baking sheet, laying the fries into just a single layer.  Use two sheet pans if needed.

DIY Chili Spice: Make your own blend of chili powder.  Combine equal parts: paprika, cumin, and black pepper.  Add a dash of oregano, coriander, garlic powder, cinnamon, and cloves, depending on your taste.
