Salt & Pepper Dirty Potato Chips

“The new rage, the store can't even keep them in stock. I am not a potato chip fan, but these are great. I make these in an iron pan like my grandpa used to, but a fryer, or whatever you use should work just as well if you make the appropriate adjustments. The seasonings you can, as always, adjust to get just the taste you want (or crave).”

  1. Wash potatoes making sure skin is free of dirt. If you prefer "clean" chips, peel the potatoes.
  2. Mix together all spices in a small dish and set aside.
  3. Slice on a mandolin and drop into cold, salted water. You can try to slice by hand, but it's very difficult to get them thin enough.
  4. In deep iron skillet pour oil about 1 1/2 " deep and heat to 365°F As oil is heating pour water off potatoes and gently pat dry.
  5. Drop slices 1 at a time into hot oil until a single layer is cooking (about 15-20 slices depending on your pan). Let cook until golden brown. Remove into paper bag to soak up excess oil.
  6. When potatoes are all done, sprinkle spiced salt mix to taste over chips and shake bag to evenly coat. Add a little at a time, you can always add more, but it's darn difficult to pick off those grains of salt if there are to many.
