These spicy baked fries are very easy to make, and a great way to kick up your burger platter.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch thick fries
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup tomato-vegetable juice cocktail
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons dried onion granules
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a large baking sheet.
  2. 2 Fill a large bowl with cold water, add the potatoes, and allow to soak for 10 minutes.
  3. 3 Whisk together the oil, vegetable juice cocktail, chili powder, ground cumin, onion granules, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Drain the potatoes, and pat dry with paper towels. Toss the potatoes with the oil and spice mixture; stir until evenly coated. Arrange fries in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. 4 Bake fries in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Turn and continue to bake until browned and crispy, about 20 additional minutes.

  1. My husband loves this!!! He's a potato lover and these hit the spot for him!! I did not however have chili powder so I used paprika and no veg juice so i got half of a small can of tomato sauce and added a bit of water to it. I greased my sheet with Pam - Read more ...
  2. I only give this 3 stars because they came out mushy and squishy on the inside. The seasoning was yummy though! I have made other baked fries before and reccomend baking them at a higher temp and for a shorter period of time so the outside is crispy and the inside is fluffy.
  3. These fries were a big hit. They are packed with flavor. I did as another reviewer suggested and fried them in a deep fryer. I whisked together the oil spicy vegetable juice and about 3/4 of the spice mix and let them sit for about 10 minutes. I fried the potatoes in 350 degree oil. - Read more ...
  4. I followed the recipe closely and was surprised at how these turned out. Usually fries in the oven are too mushy for me so I cut the potatoes very thin (about 1/4" thick strips) and they crisped up very nicely. Also add 1 tsp. of paprika to the mix and it will really help tie - Read more ...
  5. These are great. They're not supposed to be particularly crispy but in order to insure maximum crispiness: Skip the water soaking step. That's to keep them from turning grey which after you add all the red stuff--they won't look grey. So skip that. I reduced my amount of oil and V-8 (spicy variety) til the - Read more ...
  6. I liked the way these tasted but have to work on getting the crisp just right. I think the temp needs to be higher so I'll try that but the taste is good.
  7. Very nice. I halved the salt and did 3/4 less cayenne--I don't do that spicy! I baked at 400 but they still didn't crisp up. I broiled for about 5 min to crisp them up a little which worked a bit. Still nice and spicy and awesome flavor so worth the effort to see if - Read more ...
  8. These knocked our socks off! I changed the method a little but not the ingredients due to lack of time. I skipped the 10 min water soak (which would remove some surface starch) and then put them in my convection/microwave oven on fast bake. After 15 minutes I put them under the broiler to brown - Read more ...
  9. These were good waaaay salty better to put less and add more in the end if needed. They were not crispy so I increased the oven temp to 450 until they crisped up....
