New Jersey Disco Fries in the air fryer

This is the state dish of New Jersey and was popularized in the movie Saturday Night Fever (kids ask your parents). There were diners that served these to people who were coming back from discos in New York City. (Again, ask your parents). I found it a little bland and heavy, so I added some zip. So do the hustle and try stayin’ alive with these fries. I hope you like it.
