  1. I had these the other day! Think the onions were less big ( glad, can't stand seeing onions ) Very nice they were; think South African Spice was added as the pepper alternative

  2. Been looking for a good chilli chips recipe, thanks for this :)

  3. these were sooo good! thank you so much for the recipe. i added some tumeric and cumin to give more flavour and it was perfect

    1. really glad you enjoyed the chips, and thank you for your spice additions. I will definitely try and give them a go in the future!

  4. Hi can you tell me what alternative chilli sauce I can use instead of the magic sauce to get the same flavour as I can’t find that specific magic sauce locally.

  5. If you are using oven chips how much would you need for this recipe? In grams? Or is half a bag ok? How many does this serve approx? If I were to double this recipe would this cover at least 7 or more people, or is this recipe enough for that? Sorry for all the questions.

    1. No problem! For 7 people, I would do about 1 bag of oven chips.

  6. Hi

    I have no vinegar and only have light soy sauce....do you think that'll be alright?
