Totally Tangy Baked French Fries

Recipe by  

"Southwestern flavors blend with spicy mustard for a zippy alternative to deep-fried fries. Feel free to increase the cayenne, red pepper, and chili powder if you like them spicier. You won't want to let the ketchup bottle near the table!"

These were really good. I found if you crinkle the foil, there is no need to flip!

These were way too spicey for our taste.I will probably make again, BUT if I do, I will definitely cut the spices in half.

Excellent! Really spicy and delicious. The only thing I did differently was to use Charlotte potatoes (lower GI) and cut them into wedges. Then I boiled them for about 10 minutes BEFORE baking them. They were crisp outside and creamy inside. YUM! If you don't like really hot stuff, you might cut the cayenne in half.

if you bake them on stoneware they get crispy. it still takes a little extra time, but no broiling is needed. if you haven't tried stoneware yet you should. definately my best kitchen investment.

These were wicked spicy. I would probably make these again with a little less cayene. They also need to be cooked way long or at a higher temp.

Wow! These are "Totally Tangy" and absolutely delicious baked french fries with a Southwestern flair! This is a really nice combination of flavors and a great way to perk up french fries so if you like things spicy with a bit of a kick then this recipe is for you. I upped the oven temp. to 425 and lined a baking sheet with Reynolds non-stick foil. Just bake until nice and crispy then enjoy!

My husband and I really liked these. I put in a whole tsp of the red pepper flakes and almost 2 tsp of chili powder. I didn't have any brown spicy mustard so I just added 1 T of regular yellow mustard. They turned out really yummy, and spicy. We dipped ours in ranch dressing and they were great. Thanks for the recipe.

Good recipe. I used frozen steak fries and brushed the oil and spices on before baking. Nice "tangy" flavor.
