  • In a small bowl, combine oregano, thyme, paprika, cayenne, black pepper, sugar, cumin, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, Tabasco sauce, and oil; mix well into a paste.
  • Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil; pour a small amount of oil onto foil and spread with a paper towel.
  • Peel potatoes and slice into french fry shapes.
  • Place fries in a plastic bag with paste and work paste onto fries; alternatively you can do this in a bowl, but the bag method is easier.
