Spicy Chipotle Roasted Potatoes

From: EatingWell Magazine September/October 2009

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

  • 1 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold or red potatoes, scrubbed (peeled, if desired), and cut into 1-inch wedges or pieces
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper (see Note), or 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450 °F.
  2. 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.
  3. Spread the potatoes evenly on a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. 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.
