pile of Smoky Chipotle French Fries on Parchment

Smoky Chipotle Parmesan French Fries

Valentina K. Wein
Subtly spicy, wonderfully smoky, and crisped to perfection with cheese, these fries are a knock out!

  • Set the oven. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Combine everything except the potatoes. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oil with the chipotles, Parmesan, paprika, lemon juice and salt, and set it aside.
  • Prep potatoes. Peel, wash, and dry the potatoes. Then, cut them into french fry-sized pieces, about ¼ inch sticks. Add the potatoes to the bowl with the chipotle mixture and toss them until they're completely coated.
  • Roast and cool. Spread the sauced potato sticks on a baking sheet in a single layer, and place them in the preheated 425°F oven for approximately 30 minutes, or until both sides are golden brown and crispy. They should be flipped about half way through the cooking process, with a flat-bottomed metal spatula. Leave them on the baking sheet to cool.
