Wash and scrub the potatoes, then slice them into ¼ inch slices lengthwise. Think “French fry” size. You can leave the skins on, if desired. I left mine on.
Cover the potatoes in a bowl with cold water and let them soak for at least 10 minutes. 60 minutes is better. Drain the pat the potatoes as dry as you can get them.
Toss the potatoes with olive oil and taco seasoning blend. Be sure to get them nicely coated. Spread the fries out onto baking sheets and bake them for 20 minutes, tossing them a bit about half way through.
NOTE: This is a great recipe for leftover carne asada.
