Chili Roasted Potatoes
If you don't want the same old mashed or baked potatoes for dinner and need different ways to cook this starchy vegetable, this chili roasted potatoes recipe is for you. These potato slices are coated in melted butter, olive oil and spices like chili powder, garlic, and cayenne, making these potatoes both savory and spicy. Roasted potato recipes are the way to go if you don’t have a lot of time or simply don’t want to devote much time to preparing dinner on a particular night because they are very hands off. This spiced potato recipe uses red potatoes, which have such beautiful skin that there is no need to peel them as you might with other potato dishes. You just have to slice them, coat them in the ingredients and roast in a very hot oven.
As far as types of potato dishes go, roasted potatoes are one of the easiest, because the potatoes just are seasoned and tossed with some fat and roasted to perfect doneness. The main difference between this chili spiced potato recipe and other roasted potatoes is how they are sliced. The usual way to cut potatoes for roasting would be to halve or cut into bite-sized pieces. Leigh Anne, the author of ‘Your Homebased Mom’ recipe blog, enjoys a crisper potato, and therefore, chose to slice her potatoes thinly for this recipe. The potatoes don’t end up as thin as a potato chip, but very close to it, which allows them to become golden brown and a crisper exterior than if you left the potatoes in larger chunks. Another difference between this potato recipe and another oven potatoes is the temperature. This dish employs a 500 degree Fahrenheit oven, which is very high, while another version might use a temperature in the 400s. This temperature is crucial to the potatoes becoming crisp and golden, which you may have trouble achieving otherwise.

If you are a fan of crispy French fries, this delicious potato recipe would be a healthy way of enjoying a French fry texture without the high amount of fat and oil. This roasted potato recipe does use butter and oil, but significantly less than if you were frying potatoes in a large pot of either. Potatoes are such a healthy food choice, which have undeservedly obtained a bad reputation based on how they are frequently prepared with lots of cream, butter, and fat. Potato nutrients include very high levels of vitamin C and high amounts of potassium. One potato can give you more than half of your daily-recommended intake of vitamin C and twenty-one percent of your daily-recommended intake of potassium. For this reason, this chili roasted potatoes recipe should become part of your weekly meal guide. If you get tired of the spices Leigh Anne uses, you can follow her roasting method and season with flavors you like. For example, try a lemon and herb potato recipe including dried herbs and lemon zest or opt for a Moroccan-inspired potato by dusting with sumac.
