    3. Mix together the potatoes, olive oil, chipotle powder, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt until well combined.
    4. Lay the seasoned potatoes onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Do not overcrowd the potatoes.
    5. Bake for 12 minutes. Flip and bake for another 6-8 minutes until they’re golden-brown and crisp.
    6. Optional: Top with a light sprinkle of vegan cheese shreds and broil for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is hot and bubbling.

Notes:

For casual snacking: Halve the recipe and simply quarter the potatoes instead of slicing them. Serve the hot potatoes with a side of guacamole for dipping.
