These were great. I diced them and served them alongside bacon, date and manchego quesadillas. They're sweet (almost reminds me of eating a sweet potato!) but not overly so. I did find I had to add more salt than suggested to cut the sweetness, so I may use less sugar next time. Just a personal preference.

Simple & the instructions were spot on. The flavor was slightly sweet & nicely spicy! I served with a chipolte & cilantro aoili for dipping. Made in memory of Janice.

Excellent flavor - we really enjoyed these fries. I didn't use any oil. After cutting the fries I placed them in a bowl of cold wter. Just before baking I lightly dabbed them with a paper towel and sprinkled on the mixed spices -It adheres well with the dampness of the potato. Thanks for posting

After seeing pictures of this recipe I [b]had[/b] to try it. Decided to try these with baby white potatoes simply quartered into lovely wedges. (A potato is a potato.) They were great and had the advantage of cooking up in just 22 minutes. I reduced the oil by a third which made the ancho paste a little thicker but the taters were still crispy and had that lovely sweet spicy kick. Betting this would work well on sweet potatoes and plan to try that soon. Made for ZWT3.

These were so yummy! I followed the recipe to a T and we enjoyed these as part of our dinner last night. You can't ask for anything more than simple, quick, and tasty that my whole family will eat and they enjoyed it too! Thanks Nick's Mom for sharing this with us! ZWT 3

I made this for *Zaar World Tour III* - I followed the recipe as written but reduce the amount for the chilli, I had a young person eating it. I put the seasoning in a large bowl and then placed the fries/chips in the bowl and mixed them, then I placed them on a lined tray. They were so delicious, I like the spicy yet sweet yet savoury flavour, to the point it could be very addictive. Thank you Nick's Mom

Very good - I doubled up on the spices and that was a wee bit on the hot side. I think next time I'll add a bit of garlic salt

These are quick and easy. After slicing the potatoes, I placed them in a bowl, poured the remaining ingredients over and then placed then on the foil lined pan. They were crisp and delicious and lining the pan with foil makes for easy clean-up. Made for ZWTIII Family Picks.
