This is super delicious potato dish. I couldn't stop picking at them and everything about it is wonderful. The sauce is superb and I could have eaten it with a spoon. As mentioned, more garlic could be added and I sure did take that advice. Also added a bit more of the cumin and left out the cayenne pepper because opted to add some of those spicy jalapeno seeds. Thank you, Dee, for sharing. Made it "For your Consideration" tag game.
