Recipe for crispy homemade potato chips tossed with an addictive spicy and sweet seasoning mix. These are delicious!


3 pounds Russet potatoes, about 4-5 large potatoes
2 Quarts vegetable or peanut oil for frying

Addictive Seasoning:

1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon brown sugar


1) Mix together spice mixture.

2) Wash potatoes well and slice them thinly with a mandoline slicer. Add sliced potatoes to a big bowl of cold water to rinse off starch.

3) Heat oil to 350 degrees. Use a thermometer to make sure it is the right temperature.

4) Working in small batches, remove a handful of slices and dry them on a few paper towels. Then carefully add them to the fryer.

5) Fry chips for about 8 minutes until they are slightly brown and not bubbling. That means all the water is evaporated!

6) Scoop out chips and let them drain on a paper towel. Season immediately with seasoning mix.

7) Repeat until all the chips are fried.

The chips will get more crispy as they cool.
