I made this recipe X4 to include as part of my finger food counter (along with several choices of dip) for a group I host monthly! I did cut back on the cajun seasoning & the chili powder & left out the pepper altogether, & still my guests enjoyed these tasty bites! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

We enjoyed these fries tonight for dinner. They baked up very nicely in the oven -- browned and crispy on the outside but soft and smooth on the inside. The only thing I will do differenty next time is cut back a tad on the spices - especially the pepper. There are a lot of variations that one could do with these as well (in varying the different spice combinations).
