Kicked Up Texas Fries

Kicked Up Texas Fries
  • 2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes large fry cut
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbs chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350. Toss potatoes with oil, salt, and pepper. In separate bowl mix paprika, chili powder, garlic, and sugar. Toss potatoes with spice mixture. Roast for 35 minutes or until soft to the touch. These fries are my absolute favorite. Try the recipe with sweet potatoes as well.

Oh wow. I love spicy stuff. I may just have to add an extra tbs of chilli powder though. I'm a chili fiend!

Oooooooooooh I love these; haven't ever tried something like this with brown sugar. Adding pesto & roasted garlic adds nice flavour to oven roasted fries too!
