Roasted potatoes get a spicy, smoky flavor when tossed with ground chipotle pepper. If you like potato skins, just scrub the potatoes and leave the skins on--they add fiber and great texture.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450 degrees F.

  • Combine oil, paprika, salt, garlic powder and ground chipotle (or chili powder) in a large bowl. Add potatoes; toss to coat with the seasoning mixture.

  • Spread the potatoes evenly on a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Roast, stirring once or twice, until the potatoes are tender and browned, 25 to 35 minutes.


Note: Chipotle peppers are dried, smoked jalapeño peppers. Ground chipotle chile pepper can be found in the specialty spice section of most supermarkets.

Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

Delicious! These are so easy to make and taste fantastic. Made these again tonight and the kids also liked them. I didn't have the chipotle so I used chili powder. They aren't spicy but they taste fantastic. Read More
