Cajun Chili Garlic Fries
I'll actually post a recipe for this..
ancho chili powder, coarse sea salt, chopped garlic, garlic powder, freshly ground pepper mix, cajun spices, canola and grapeseed oil..
Shoot, here's somethin resembling a recipe:
Preheat oven to 425F.
Peel one large yam, and cut into strips.
Put strips in a bowl, and toss with 1/2 tablespoon of canola oil and 1/2 tablespoon of grapeseed oil. You can certainly use all of one, I wanted to try it grapeseed in this.
1/8 teaspoon ancho chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt (or less, to taste), couple dashes freshnly ground black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon cajun mix (I buy this in bulk), and pinch of cayenne. Of course all of this is approximate in my kitchen..
Spread out, making sure they don't touch, on a baking sheet lightly greased with canola oil or on parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes, flip fries with a spatula, very liberally sprinkle with 2 cloves of chopped garlic, and bake for another 10-15 minutes, to desired crispness. As these are baked, not fried, they won't get 'fried' crispy, but are still awesome, if I do say so.
