 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           ancho chile powder
    2      tablespoons   ground cumin
    2      tablespoons   salt
    4      cups          peanut oil
    4      large         potatoes -- sliced lengthwise
                         --into very thin shoestring strips
 
 Combine the chile powder, cumin and salt and set aside.
 
 In a large saucepan over high heat, heat the peanut oil to 375 degrees, or
 until a bit of potato sizzles when immersed. Fry the potatoes in batches
 for about 3 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
 
 Immediately season with the spice mixture and serve.
