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.

Ingredients For far out fries

  • 3 potatoes scrubbed { not peeled }
  • 1 & ¾ cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ground pepper
  • 2 large anaheim peppers cut into ¼ inch rings
  • 1 beautiful habanero pepper { chopped fine }
  • oil
  • pam no stick spray

How To Make far out fries

  • 1
    Slice the Anaheim peppers into rings.
  • 2
    Finely chop the habanero { as small as you can chop this }.
  • 3
    Wash the potatoes { leave whole } and unpeeled.
  • 4
    Early 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.
  • 5
    Sprinkle with the salt and pepper and dot with butter.
  • 6
    Add the sliced Anaheim peppers and the habanero.
  • 7
    Cook 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.
  • 8
    Set aside the cooked stock and peppers or if you do this the day before put the stock and peppers into containers and refrigerate.
  • 9
    When you are ready to make them, slice the cold potatoes into fries.

    At 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.
