   cup & refrigerate overnight to flavor oil.
   FRENCH FRIES: Preheat oven to 350F. Place potatoes in large mixing
   bowl. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Remove
   peppers and bay leaf from oil. Toss potatoes with oil. Place in
   shallow baking pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden-brown,
   turning several times to allow to brown evenly and to keep from
   sticking. Transfer to serving platter and garnish with whole chilies.
