Homemade Spicy Potato Chips ~ Day 155

Fresh and crispy home-made chips are always better than the store bought ones and you can taste the real potato flavor in them.  These easy to make chips can be seasoned with just salt and pepper as well.   But nothing can beat the chili pepper seasoned potato chips.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
 Cooking time: 20 minutes
Yields: 2 cups

  • Potatoes (Red or White) - 4
  • Oil - for frying
  • Salt - to taste
  • Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Dried thyme - 1/2 tsp
  • or any herb of your choice

  1. Wash and dry the potatoes.  Combine the salt, chili powder, and dried thyme in a small bowl, set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a deep skillet.  Hold a hand-held slicer above the oil and slice the potato directly into the oil.   Alternatively, you can slice one potato at a time, into a plate using a mandoline or slicer.  Then drop the slices carefully into the oil.
  3. Deep fry the potatoes over medium-high heat, until golden brown.  Keep moving the potatoes while frying to prevent them from sticking to each another.  Drain on paper towel.  Immediately sprinkle some salt mixture.  Repeat the process with rest of the potatoes.  Season each batch of chips after frying.
  4. Let cool completely and store in an airtight container.
