Ingredients

  • Peanut or canola oil, for frying
  • Large pinch kosher salt 
  • Large pinch smoked paprika 
  • Small pinch chili powder 
  • 8 medium red potatoes 

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Fill a Dutch oven halfway with peanut oil and preheat to 350 degrees F.

Mix together the salt, smoked paprika and chili powder in a small bowl.

Using a mandolin (with the waffle blade if you have it!), slice the potatoes thinly, dropping them into a bowl of cold water as you go. Remove the potatoes from the water and blot dry with paper towels.

In batches, fry the potatoes until golden brown, 2 to 5 minutes. Drain on a paper-towel-lined baking sheet and season with the spice mixture.
