A delicious side to BBQ…

Spicy french fries are among some of the best fiery sides around  – whether it’s garlicky Sriracha fries (see the recipe here) or a more smoky fare like these delicious chipotle fries. Chipotle powder brings jalapeño level heat and smoky undertones to these russet potatoes. Lime zest is here, too, for a little light tang to the fry.

These are terrific fries to cook up as a barbecue side. Though, the recipe is so easy you’ll likely find yourself coming back to it throughout the year.
