Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place the potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with cold water and add 1 tablespoon salt, bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes fall apart when a fork is inserted, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain well.

Step 2

Heat the canola oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and jalapeno and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds.. Stir in the chile powder.

Step 3

Add the potatoes to the skillet, season with salt and pepper and toss, slightly smashing the potatoes with a metal spatula. Press the potato mixture into one even layer and cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Flip the potatoes, and gently smash again into an even layer; cook until the bottom is golden brown, about 5 more minutes. Stir in the cilantro and lime zest.

Whew! These were good but super spicy!! I like spice, but will cut down on the amount of ancho chili spice even more next time (I halved it this time). I really LOVED the cooking method of these potatoes and will most definitely be cooking them like this again! We also really loved the sweet onion. The potatoes got nice and crispy. Yum! Thank you!

Wow, were these little babies good Teresa. We really enjoyed the potatoes prepared this way. Made as written but didn't use ancho spice as I was out. They were wonderful without it. Sorry no photo, my battery died... but will get a photo next time. Yes, we will be enjoying these often, my dh loved them. Made for Best of 2019 recommended by Dienie.
