I made this recipe, cutting my potato like fries rather than wedges. I cut my fries and let them sit in cold water in the refrigerator until I was ready to bake them. I dried them well with paper towels, tossed them with the oil and spices and baked them at 400 degrees in a cast iron skillet. I turned them halfway through the cooking time. These didn’t crisp up as much as I thought they would, so I’m wondering if letting them sit in the water for several hours may have been part of the problem. In order to get them crisp, I baked them longer, which started to turn the chili powder dark – darker than I would have liked. Next time I won’t cut my fries ahead of time and soak them, to see if that makes a difference. Four stars due to too high an oven temp and the baking time is too long.
