Sometimes you want grilled fries and you just don't have the time to parboil them. Enter the fabulous Grilled Barbecue Potato "Chips" Slices. Perfect for the summer grilling get together! No parboiling, no baking. Just, slice, season and grill! How easy is that?
These look like potato chips and taste like grilled fries. Crisp on the outside and tender inside. The seasoning gives them a smoky barbecue flavor with just a little kick of heat. You can adjust the recipe to add more heat, just increase the cayenne or chile de arbol.
TSRI Tip: Buy a coffee grinder at a thrift store and use it to grind your own spices. I have fallen in love with Chile de Arbol. It gives food a more complex flavors adding a very nutty/smokey layer to your dishes. It also add a real warmth that I truly love. It is not so easy to find as a ground spice. Head to the international aisle in your grocery store and pick up a bag of dried chile de arbols. Grind them in your coffee grinder and keep them in an airtight container.
