Peanut or canola oil, for frying

Large pinch kosher salt 

Large pinch smoked paprika 

Small pinch chili powder 

8 medium red potatoes 


  1. Fill a Dutch oven halfway with peanut oil and preheat to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix together the salt, smoked paprika and chili powder in a small bowl.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
