Pepper Lime Potatoes

There are a variety of ways in which baked potatoes can be flavored. Today I used small red potatoes with chipotle red pepper in adobe sauce and lime. The peppery lime dressing is poured over the top of the baked potatoes.


This makes a great snack. You can change the amount of the red pepper to adjust the level of heat. I adapted the recipe from here.

You will need
5 small red potatoes
1 tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper
3 tbsp. cilantro

For the dressing
1 chipotle red pepper in adobe sauce
2 tbsp. lime juice
1 tbsp. lime zest
1 clove garlic
3 tsp. olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 F. Wash and dry the potatoes then cut them in quarters. Sprinkle salt, pepper and olive oil over the potatoes. Toss to coat. Layer them on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes turning over every 10 minutes.


In the meantime, crush and mince the garlic and zest the lime. Extract one pepper from the adobe sauce and mince. Remove the seeds before you mince if you want to cut down the heat.


Mix the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl and whisk them together.


When the potatoes are done let them rest for a couple minutes.


Mix them with the dressing and chopped cilantro.


Serve.

I am submitting this recipe for the 13th week of the 52 week challenge for the theme Potatoes.
