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.
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.
