  • 1 Bag Frozen French Fries (*Note 1)
  • Cooking Spray
  • Salt, To Taste

Chipotle Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 Cup Full Fat Mayonnaise
  • 2-3 Chipotle Peppers (Seeded and Chopped) (*Note 2)
  • 1/2 Tbsp Adobo Sauce (*Note 3)
  • 1/4 tsp Brown Sugar (*Note 4)
  • 1/4 tsp Lime Juice
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Minced
  • Salt, to Taste (*Note 5)


Chipotle Mayo Dip:

  • All all the ingredients to a medium bowl and stir to combine. Refrigerate, covered, for at least an hour so the flavors blend together. This can be made up to 24 hours in advance.

Air Fried French Fries:

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400º. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray.
  • Add the fries to the basket, spritz with the cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.
  • Cook for 20 minutes, tossing halfway through.
  • Remove from the air fryer, divide between plates and enjoy immediately.


Note 1- We use traditional french fries. If you're using shoestring fries you may need to cut back the cook time by a few minutes. If you're using steak fries you may need to add a few minutes to the total cook time.
Note 2- Add one pepper to start with and taste the spice level. Add a second pepper if you can handle the smoky heat!
Note 3- This is the sauce the Chipotle Peppers are packed in. The can will say "Chipotle Peppers with Adobo Sauce."
Note 4- Add an extra 1/4 tsp if you like a sweeter sauce.
Note 5 - Salt has not been added to the nutritional calculation.
