What makes these French fries Ultimate? The proper technique of cutting the potatoes into the right width, the double frying method (the second frying after being dusted with a secret ingredient), and the perfect temperatures during both the frying stages deliver the crispy-on-the outside and tender-on-the-inside fry.

Raghavan Iyer folds black beans and tomatoes into his queso fundido for a deeper contrast not only of texture, but of color as well. He serves the addictive dip with his Ultimate French Fries.
