I’ve made these Baked Sriracha Potato Chips a number of days in a row now. Oh sure, I like to check my recipes a couple of instances earlier than posting them, however I believe this time it’s as a result of these are just a little bit addictive. They’re each crispy and spicy, two of my favourite qualities in a snack.
Spice and I
I haven’t all the time been a fan of spicy meals. Mostly as a result of I didn’t develop up consuming it. Back within the day, I used to assume Tombstone cheese pizza was spicy. (Yes, actually.) Indian and Thai meals weren’t on my radar and any dish involving jalapenos was unthinkable to me.
For this, I blame my mother. She by no means made us something spicy as a result of she didn’t like spicy meals herself. My brothers and I nonetheless wish to chuckle concerning the time we went to Chili’s and our mother acquired upset concerning the meals being spicy. I used to be in highschool on the time, when each embarrassment appears so epic and horrific, and I keep in mind wishing so desperately that I might disappear as she complained (loudly!) to the waiter that her rooster quesadillas have been spicy. And then—after which!—she requested to talk with the supervisor.
Because the rooster quesadillas have been spicy.
At a restaurant with a chili pepper in its brand.
(My mother goes to be so mad that I’m writing about this.)
When I started courting my husband, that’s after I began sneaking little bites of the spicy meals he ordered. And quickly, these little bites was greater bites after which I used to be ordering spicy dishes for myself. I nonetheless don’t like issues which might be too spicy, however so long as the dominant taste isn’t “searing pain”, we’re good.
About the Recipe
With sriracha, I’ve discovered that just a little bit goes a good distance. I believe a single teaspoon is simply excellent in these baked sriracha potato chips. It offers them a kick with out it being disagreeable. It’s a sluggish warmth that creeps up on you—at first, you assume, “This needs more sriracha.” And then, “Oh, hi sriracha. There you are!” Of course, should you like issues tremendous spicy, you may wish to up this to a teaspoon and a half and even two. But don’t say I didn’t warn you. Because this isn’t Chili’s and there’s no supervisor so that you can complain to.

- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 2 servings

- Brush potato slices with sriracha oil combination and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 10–20 minutes—baking time relies on oven temperature and thickness of slices. It’s actually essential that after 10 minutes, you examine on these each minute or so as a result of they go from completely carried out to burnt actually rapidly! They’ll be carried out when the sides start to brown—some elements should be just a little bit mushy, however that’s to be anticipated with baked potato chips. Serve immediately—home made potato chips don’t retailer effectively.
For crispier chips, soak your potatoes first. After you’ve sliced the potatoes, put them in a bowl and canopy them with ice chilly water. Let them sit for about an hour or two, then drain and rinse the potato slices. Line them on paper towels and dry completely. This removes a few of the starch from the potatoes. I attempted making these Baked Sriracha Potato Chips with the soaking step and with out; they’re scrumptious both approach you make them, however soaking the potatoes first undoubtedly resulted in a crispier chip.
