These were very good. I was using my deep fryer to make chicken and wanted a side dish to do with it using the deep fryer. This fit the bill perfectly. Thank you

Cut into rounds these duplicate the Rojo potatoes served at the Shakey's chain. Our Shakey's closed more than a decade ago, and my family was stoked when I made these last night. They couldn't get enough. The only changes I made were cutting the potatoes into rounds and I added just a touch more garlic. They were wondermous!

All I have to say is... yum! My husband and I are both fans of Shakey's original Mojos, but don't live very close to a Shakey's anymore. To top it off, my kids and I are now on gluten-free diets, so we can't eat them at Shakey's anymore. I simply substituted my usual gluten-free flour blend for the flour and it turned out beautifully. My kids an husband can't stop raving!
