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.
