  1. Slice potatoes in wide rectangular slices about 1/4-inch thick and 3/4-inch wide, yielding 12 to 15 slices per potato. Keep potatoes in cold ice-water bath until ready to fry.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  4. Dry potato slices on paper towels.
  5. Fry potatoes in hot oil for 1 minute; remove from oil, drain, and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes. Return potatoes to oil and fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes more. Again, remove from oil and drain briefly on paper towels.
  6. Spread potatoes onto a baking sheet; top with Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, and bacon.
  7. Heat the fries under the broiler until the cheese melts, 3 to 5 minutes. Top with jalapeno peppers to serve with ranch for dipping.

YUM! I used chopped pickled jalapenos instead of the whole slices (for better distribution), and just eyeballed everything to taste. Oh, and I salted my fries when I was finished frying them. Th...
