Spicy Ribbon Potato Chips

4 medium unpeeled baking potatoes

4 teaspoons salt, divided

4 cups ice water

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Oil for deep-fat frying

Using a vegetable peeler or metal cheese slicer, cut potatoes into very thin lengthwise strips. Place in a large bowl; add 3 teaspoons salt and ice water. Soak for 30 minutes; drain. Place potatoes on paper towels and pat dry. In a bowl, combine the chili powder, garlic salt, cayenne and remaining salt; set aside.

In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375. Cook potatoes in oil in batches for 3-4 minutes or until deep golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Immediately sprinkle with seasoning mixture. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 6-8 servings.
