Thanks for the recipe. I'm a guy who doesn't cook much and my family was surprised. I added jalape?os for an additional kick.

Simple yet satisfying. Husband really liked it. The key is to crisp the potatoes!

The most important part is to get the potatoes to desired crispness. The type of pan and personal taste is key. [I posted this recipe.]
