Air Fryer Essentials: Crispy, Spicy Diced Potatoes

Andy Anderson !


Made these yesterday as a snack, and at the end decided to kick them up with some hot sauce and butter… glad that I did. I can see serving them as a side with a good pub burger or steak, and as a snack they are awesome.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
