Mexican Potatoes

Another recipe from BBC Good Food and I loved these so thought I must share them.  I cooked them to go with the Mexican Chicken Stew that I blogged yesterday.

The potatoes were really simple to knock together but really tasty.  My only two pointers would be that I would parboil them for longer because they took ALOT longer to cook than what the original recipe said so I have adjusted the timings here.  I thought they were never going to be ready!

A really nice side dish or tasty snack!  Recipe serves 4 (cough, cough)

Mexican Potatoes


800g potatoes, cut into cubes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1/2 tsp mild chilli powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
soured cream, to serve


Boil the potatoes for 7-8 mins.  Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan and gently fry the onion for around 8 minutes.  Mix in the garlic and spices and fry for another 2 mins.

Drain the potatoes and add to the pan with the onion.  Turn the heat up and shake the potatoes around so they are covered by the onions and spices. 

Cook for 10-15mins until tender and serve with a good dollop of sourced cream!
