Far out fries

This is one of those { silly but yummy } dishes I came up with about a year ago. You can use any fresh medium/hot peppers you like.
Normally I would do 2 medium size potatoes instead of 3, but since I one small one left I thought I might as well use it up.
I served these with buffalo cheddar burgers on ciabatta rolls.
NOTE:
WHEN WORKING WITH ANY TYPE OF HOT PEPPERS EITHER WEAR KITCHEN SAFE GLOVES, OR WASH YOUR HANDS RIGHT AFTER TOUCHING THEM.

2Finely chop the habanero { as small as you can chop this }.

Step 3 Direction Photo

3Wash the potatoes { leave whole } and unpeeled.

4Early in the morning { or better yet do this the day before } put the potatoes in a pot large enough to hold them, and pour the stock over them.

5Sprinkle with the salt and pepper and dot with butter.

6Add the sliced Anaheim peppers and the habanero.

7Cook covered on a low heat { you don’t want the stock to evaporate before the potatoes are done } till the potatoes are soft. When they are done remove them from the remaining stock, do not discard the stock or peppers.

8Set aside the cooked stock and peppers or if you do this the day before put the stock and peppers into containers and refrigerate.

9When you are ready to make them, slice the cold potatoes into fries.

Step 10 Direction Photo

10At this point you have { 2 } options on how to get them crisp.
1.Get the oil hot and fry as you normally would. While the fries are cooking, put a small amount of the broth into a small pot and get the peppers hot, cook them on a low heat, once the fries are done, drain the peppers and top the fries with them.
2.Place the fries on a baking sheet and chop the peppers and put them on top of the fries, bake them in a hot oven 375/400 till they are golden and crisp. They will be beautiful and crisp on the bottoms, if you use this method; you can spray them with the Pam or toss the cut potatoes in wee bit O oil first. Season with a bit more salt while they are still hot.
