Ingredients

2 lb
frozen crinkle-cut french fries
1/2 c
dried red chiles, such as cayenne or arbol
1/4 c
vegetable oil
2 Tbsp
whole cumin seeds
1 Tbsp
sichuan peppercorns
kosher salt
4
scallions, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Position racks in the upper and lower third of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with foil, then divide the fries between them. Bake, tossing once or twice, until crisp and golden brown, 30 to 45 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
2
Place the chiles in a bowl, cover with a plate and shake to release seeds. Fish out the chiles, leaving the seeds behind.
3
Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds, peppercorns, chopped chiles, and 1 tablespoon salt and cook, stirring, until toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the scallions and remove from heat.
4
Toss the fries with the spiced oil and season with salt. Remove and discard and large chile pieces.
