I am a big supporter of local business and love to encourage others to as well. There are numerous reasons to put your money into your local economy. Making it a really great cause! Lately I have been mixing some of our favorite Arizona products with ones I’ve discovered here in Columbus.
Spicy Oven Baked Taco Fries
This Spicy Oven Baked Taco Fries recipe is a great example. We have endorsed Queen Creek Olive Mill products since day one. Their commitment to family, community, and quality is heart warming. Their spicy jalapeno olive oil adds just the right amount of heat to this recipe. It’s also fantastic drizzled over roasted vegetables. I like to brush it on pieces of a locally made baguette for spicy crostini. In fact I have another recipe up this week where we did just that!
My Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix is what really gives these fries their flavor, in addition to the spicy oil. You can use a prepackaged spice mix, but I really like the creative control when making my own. Plus you know there are no additives or sodium. I like to premix my taco seasoning and keep it in an old spice jar so it’s ready to go when ever I need it! I sprinkle in refried beans, on leftover rotisserie chicken, and even use it to make salad dressings or marinades.
So there you have it! These Spicy Oven Baked Taco Fries are easy to make, full of flavor, and make a great late night snack. If you really want to turn this idea into a full meal rub a whole potato in the oil, sprinkle it with the seasoning mix, and then bake. Once your spiced baked potato is ready, stuff it with your favorite taco toppings!
