  • Author: Heather Scholten | Mama Spice
  • Prep Time: 4 hours
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 4 hours, 20 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4 servings 1x


  • 23 russet potatoes, cut into French Fries
  • Oil, for frying (vegetable or canola)
  • 24 tablespoons Black & Bleu spice blend
  • nacho cheese sauce, warmed
  • 3 strips bacon, chopped and cooked
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed and sliced
  • Mexican Crema
  • Sriracha
  • Cilantro


  1. Cut the potatoes into French fry shape using a mandolin or a sharp knife.  Place in a large bowl of cold water and soak for 3-4 hours.  Remove and drain on a paper towel lined baking sheet for at least 10 minutes before frying.
  2. Heat oil to 375º F and add the fries in batches.  Cook until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove to a large bowl and add a tablespoon or 2 of the spice rub and toss with tongs.  Repeat with remaining potatoes and spice blend.
  3. Pile the fries on a platter and drizzle with nacho cheese sauce, sprinkle on bacon pieces, jalapenos and drizzle crema and sriracha.  Top with cilantro and serve immediately.
