Fast, Easy, and Very Spicy!
This is a simple but good recipe I have been making for years. The Potato wedges are baked so there should a little less fat than french fries though the recipe does use some oil. It’s going to be spicy, but if you like you can reduce the amount of cayenne by half. It’s great because you can actually freeze unused portions of the potatoes to eat later! I tried these with both mayo and ketchup on the side and both were great. These ingredients make about 3 portions but just increase the amount of spices appropriately if you want to make more.
2 large red potatoes cut into wedge shapes
For the spice mixture 1 tablespoon each of Paprika, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder Salt, Pepper, Celery Seed, Oregeno, Parsley, Cumin, Cayenne (1/2 tablespoon if you feel it might be too hot to eat!)
Preheat your oven to about 375 degrees Fahrenheit
First put a little vegetable oil in a shallow baking tray and roll the potatoes in the oil.
Put all the spices in a bowl and mix them together
Roll the potatoes in the spice mixture then place them back on the baking tray
Bake for about 35-40 minutes turning them over about halfway though and take them out when they are fork tender. You may need to add a little more oil to the pan to keep the potatoes from getting too dry.
Serve with side of Mayo or Ketchup and make sure there is water on hand to put out the fires
