Something a little different for your fries! You can add hot sauce or/and chile powder to the ketchup for more zing.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon cilantro, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons new mexico chile powder


  1. In a small bowl, mix ketchup, cilantro and vinegar.
  2. In another small bowl, mix salt and chile powder.
  3. While your fries are still hot, sprinkle them with the salt mix and use the ketchup for dunking.
  4. I roasted potato wedges sprayed with olive oil in a hot oven till crispy and browned.

Both the ketchup and the salt were WONDERFUL on our fries as well as our fried fish. I used more than the 1 tsp of cilantro; probably more like 1 tablespoon. The longer it sat, the better it was. Thanks for sharing these recipes; definitely keepers!
