Nothing could be easier to make then these oven baked fries. A packet of your favorite taco seasoning adds just the right zip to these delicious spuds. One of my favorite “kids of all ages will love” recipes.
3 med. Idaho or russet potatoes (about 1 1/4 lb), peeled
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
2 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. taco seasoning mix (1.25 oz. pkg.)
1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Grease a cookie sheet.
2. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half into 4 wedges (about 1 1/2 inches on the wide side); place cut side down in pan.
3. In a large bowl, combine the sliced potatoes, oil, and taco seasoning mix. Toss until potatoes are evenly coated. Arrange potatoes in single layer in pan.
4. Bake at 450°F, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until bottoms are crispy. Turn potatoes. Bake about 5 minutes longer or until bottoms are crispy.
These fries are equal parts affordable, easy to prepare, and tasty! I like to get creative with condiments for dipping. Ketchup, taco sauce, salsa, and sour cream are some of my favorites. Sometimes I even sprinkle some shredded cheese over the fries when I turn them in the oven. Mmmmmmmm!
