Man Food Week: Kamikaze Fries {Copycat}

I love Food Network - one of my favorite shows is Triple D. Guy Fieri is just hilarious and he always shows the best, best shindigs. My Before I Die board on Pinterest is turning into Triple D stops! I was watching reruns one night and saw Naked City Pizza (in Las Vegas) making these unbelievable looking French fries called Suicide Fries. Unfortunately, all my googling didn't result in an exact recipe. So I rewatched the clip and jotted down what was in them. So here is my take on Suicide Fries.

We threw our kamikaze hot sauce into an old Frank's hot sauce bottle since there was more than enough to go around!
Kamikaze Fries - a grenade for your tastebuds! #fries #manfood #gameday #spicy

What you need:
Hot Pepper Medley:
  • Olive oil
  • Various peppers: cherry peppers, jalapenos, pepperocinis, serranos (we used jalapenos and banana peppers because that is what our grocery store had), sliced - leave in some seeds and some of the ribs
  • Salt
  • Water
Kamikaze Hot Sauce:
  • Olive oil
  • 5 to 6 Habanero peppers
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup Red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parsley
  • 2/3 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • Potatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parsley
  • Oil for frying
For hot pepper medley: 
Heat a few Tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Add peppers and cook until softened. Add salt and pepper to taste and a little water to sweat down. Set aside.

For Kamikaze hot sauce: 
Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high, add onions and caramelize. 
Add garlic and cook one more minute. Remove and set aside.
Heat a few Tbsp. olive oil over medium to medium-high heat. 
Add habaneros and cook for a few minutes. Add onions and garlic. 
Deglaze pan with vinegar.

Add salt and pepper, parsley, and Frank's red hot sauce. Heat for 2 to 3 minutes.

Place into blender and blend until smooth.

For fries: 
Slice up potatoes. Heat oil a little over 350*

Fry in batches for about 10 to 15 minutes or until starting to brown. Remove onto a paper towel and let rest for a minute or so. Then return to fry until golden brown. 
Test with a fork to make sure they are cooked through.

Toss with salt, pepper, and parsley.

Serve fries topped with hot pepper medley and Kamikaze sauce.
Fantastical Original
