Mexican Oven Fries

I love potatoes in pretty much all forms, and these are no exception.  They are very versatile (use whatever spice you like!) and incredibly simple.  I made these to go with some black bean burgers and my husband and I basically inhaled the whole batch before the rest of dinner was even ready.  

4 red potatoes, scrubbed and dried
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
2 tsp Mexican seasoning (or really any seasoning you'd like)

Preheat oven to 400 F
Cut the potatoes lengthwise into 8 wedges each.
Toss in a large bowl with the oil, salt, and seasoning.
Arrange in a single layer in a shallow baking dish lined with foil.
Cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until golden brown and easily pierced with a fork.

(Note - I used McCormicks Mexcian seasoning, which includes chili powder, cumin, garlic, and onion)

These are the kind of fries I grew up with. Now I just have to figure out what spices would be in Mexican spice...I'm thinking cumin and cilantro....
