You won't settle for store bought chips after munching these crispy, deep fried snacks. Season with chili powder and cayenne pepper, the zippy chips are surefire crowd-pleasers. This recipe came from Taste of Home's cookbook.
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 small 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 degrees. Cook potatoes in oil in batches for 3 to 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.
