- 4 large potatoes
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 2 cups cheese curds
- 1 cup beef gravy
- 1 tablespoon "KICKIN' CHICKEN RUB" seasoning
- Sprinkle with cayenne pepper for a bit more heat
- Peel the potatoes and cut them into thick French fry shapes.
- Place the cut potatoes in a large bowl of cold water and let them soak for about 30 minutes. This will help remove excess starch and make the fries crispier.
- Drain the potatoes and pat them dry using a clean kitchen towel or paper towel.
- In a deep fryer or large pot, heat vegetable oil to around 350°F (175°C).
- Carefully lower the potatoes into the hot oil and fry them in batches for about 5 to 7 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crispy. Remove the fries from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
- In a small bowl, combine the "KICKIN' CHICKEN RUB" seasoning with a pinch of salt. Sprinkle this seasoning mixture over the hot French fries and toss them gently to coat evenly.
- In a separate saucepan, heat the beef gravy until it's hot and bubbly.
- To assemble the poutine, place a layer of the seasoned fries on a serving platter or individual plates. Sprinkle a handful of cheese curds over the fries, then pour a generous amount of hot beef gravy over the top.
- Repeat the layering process with the remaining fries, cheese curds, and gravy.
- Serve the Spicy Canadian Poutine immediately while it's still hot, allowing the cheese curds to slightly melt into the fries. Enjoy!
Note: You can adjust the amount of "KICKIN' CHICKEN RUB" seasoning according to your spice preference. Feel free to add additional toppings such as cooked bacon, green onions, or chopped jalapeños for extra flavor and heat.
