1/2 dried ancho chile, seeded and hand-torn into pieces

1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon sweet paprika

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Pinch ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoons kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 bags of your favorite potato chips (recommended: Terra brand mixed root chips, kettle cooked potato chips)

2 limes, grated on a microplane


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine spice ingredients in a spice grinder and grind until you have a fine powder.
  3. Take 2 large cookie sheets and spread chips out evenly. Place in the oven for about 5 to 7 minutes, until they are just warmed through and release some of their oil (this will help the spice mixture stick). Sprinkle spice mix over the warm chips - or toss chips and spice mixture together in a very large mixing bowl. Grate fresh lime zest over the top and serve.
