    SusieQusie's Note:

    My version of the Riscky's BBQ Original. They offer them as an appetizer but I can make a meal of it. While the real thing is best, one serving equals my total monthly fat allotment. I skinnied it down by sauteeing the onions & peppers rather than dropping them in the deep fryer as they do. I also prefer to oven bake fresh cut potatoes.We like them to put the quick back in our step so I pepper heavily. Fork required!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 32 ounces frozen french fries (or use your favorite home made version)
    • 1 large sweet onion, peeled, sliced thin & ringed
    • 1 cup sliced pickled jalapeno peppers, canned (preferred) or 1 cup sliced fresh jalapeno
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • salt
    • ground black pepper
    • ranch dressing (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bake or fry potatoes, whichever you prefer.
    2. 2
      Pour oil in a large skillet. Add onions & jalapenos & cook, stirring often, till onions are tender, about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      **We prefer the canned jalapenos because the vinegar seeps into the onions while cooking & flavors the whole dish. If using fresh peppers, you may need either more oil or a dash of vinegar.
    4. 4
      Spoon half the onion/pepper mixture onto a serving dish. Top with hot fries. Add remaining onion & peppers.
    5. 5
      Salt to taste but pepper liberally.
    6. 6
      To make it authentic, serve with ranch dressing for dipping rather than ketchup.

      What a great recipe! We baked the fries and used diced canned jalapenos, although only about half of what the recipe called for. I couldn't resist sprinkling some shredded cheese on top and sticking back under the broiler for a minute. Delicious with homemade ranch dressing! Thank you for posting Susie. Made for ZaarStars tag, please see my rating system.

      Wow these were good! I used fewer jalapenos but still enjoyed plenty of spice. The ranch dressing helps cool the heat a bit.
