Crispy Potatoes with Spicy Tomato Sauce

March/April 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4.6 (18 votes)

This recipe is inspired by our love of the Spanish tapa Patatas Bravas—crispy bites of potatoes sometimes served with a spicy tomato sauce. If you’re not in the mood for a spicy sauce, just add a tiny pinch of crushed red pepper or omit it altogether. The recipe makes lots of the zesty, lycopene-rich sauce—any leftover sauce will hold well for a few days. Try it in an omelet or as a sandwich spread.

This was such a great recipe. Not to toot my own horn, but these were better then some I have had in Tapas Restaurants! The recipe makes a ton of sauce but it so so versitile you can use it many places.

Love these

I made half the recipe and used a teeny less red pepper than suggested. These came out fabulous. I like the inside of the potatoes really soft and the outside crispy. I cooked them for 25 minutes and there really soft on the inside so I put them on low and covered them. Delicious!!! Dipping sauce is excellent!

Tasty, easy to make, easy cleanup
so good

I cooked them the full 20 minutes if I remember. The combo of crispy potato and rich tomato sauce was to die for. We did have leftover sauce and used it as suggested with scrambled eggs and other things. It was good, good, good.

so good
