If you can roast potatoes – you can manage this dish.  It is spicy & pretty & delicious!  It would be a nice Cinco de Mayo side dish but it is so yummy – I bet once you try it – you will put this in your regular rotation.

I used russet potatoes because I bought a bag of them the size of a body bag & I am trying to work my way through them.  Any potato would work here, though, even sweet potatoes.



Chipotle Lime Roasted Potatoes


3 large russet potatoes (or any other potato- including sweet potatoes)

olive oil


3 chipotle peppers – minced

1 TBS adobo sauce (from the can of chipotles)

2 garlic cloves – minced

1 large lime – juice & zest

2 tsp olive oil

1/4 cup cilantro – chopped



Wash the potatoes.  Peel if you want to.  I did not.  Cut them up into bite sized chunks.  Toss in some olive oil until all the potatoes are thoroughly coated & sprinkle with salt & pepper & roast in a 400 degree oven for about 45 minutes or until they are golden brown.  Mine could have used another 10-15 minutes to increase their color but I got impatient.


While they roast, whisk the remaining ingredients together (chipotle, adobo, garlic, lime juice & zest, olive oil & cilantro).  When the potatoes are done, immediately toss them in the sauce being sure they are well coated & serve!   See?  EASY!
