Lone Star State Fries

(1 Votes)
25 Min

Lone Star State Fries are big and spicy, just like Texas, the Lone Star State.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 potatoes (about 2-1/2 pounds), with skin on
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine paprika, chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Seal bag and shake to mix.
  3. Cut each potato in half then each half into 4 flat wedges. Add peanut oil and potatoes to seasoning in bag then close tightly and shake to coat well.
  4. Spread potatoes in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until fork-tender. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and serve immediately.

Sure, you can peel the potatoes if you want, but we like the extra crunchiness of the skin. Besides, the skin is good for us!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I think I would also add garlic powder to the ingredients in the large plastic bag.

I think the message to add to my recipe never came up?
