For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

Cutting the potatoes this way makes them crispier, take hold of flavour better and, of course, they look better! Beautiful texture in the mouth too.

Spiced with Spicentice Chipoltle Rub, this is a perfect side dish to a meal, or served with our Syn Free Slow Cooker Chilli

Obviously the more people, the more potatoes and rub you’ll need. I know I don’t need to tell you that, but we do like to be thorough!

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for these Syn Free Chipotle Hasselback Potatoes.

Or if you’re feeling adventurous why not try the Avocado, Chilli or Garlic flavours.

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C Cut the potatoes around half way through very finely across the whole potato. The finer you chop, the crispier they will be
  2. Place on a baking tray and fry liberally with Frylight. Add Spicentice Chipoltle Rub to your potatoes and rub in, being careful not to break the potatoes
  3. Pop in the oven for around 30-40 minutes, making sure the potatoes are placed cut side up. Check occasionally to make sure they're not burning. Not that you need telling. Enjoy!

  1. I’m not very good at “fine cut” so I have sent off for an Amazon gadget that is sort of like a spiralizer, that in theory should made the potato into a big long spring?!?!? I hope it works!!!! I will let you know. Thanks for the recipes, they are all magnificent xx

  2. HI there i don’t have that rub in and hoping to try this recipe today. COuld i use American bbq spice instead? Thanks. Ps thanks for all the amazing recipes you guys come up with love trying them.

    1. Hi Louise
      That should work, but it’s worth checking the Syn value of the spice blend you choose, as some of them do have sugar or oil as ingredients, so not all of them are free. 🙂
