Summer creates a flurry of activities, commitments and fun obligations. Play dates, barbecues, picnics, and vacations. There never seems to be enough time to fit everything in.

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.
If you get a chance, stop by Fresina’s and check out their store.
There products are truly amazing. Pasta is unlike any I have ever had!
And red sauce that is perfect straight from the jar. You will love it

Haha! I totally get your point. Not everyone has the patience of waiting almost an hour for a set of barbeque to be grilled. Whether we admit it or not, we are always after the eating part. I think these grilled barbeque potato chips are perfect this summer, when people just want to eat and not entertain anything that causes stress and fatigue.
These are delicious, and a great substitute for french fries! I really enjoyed having these with our last cookout!
