A yummy Southwestern version of classic home fries.
  • 2 pounds new potatoes, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1½ teaspoon dark chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  1. In a small bowl, stir together salt, pepper, dark chili powder, and garlic powder. Cube potatoes into roughly ½-inch cubes. You can leave the skin on.
  2. Heat a medium pot of salted water to a simmer. Add potatoes and boil until just tender, about 6-8 minutes and then drain.
  3. Add oil to a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the drained potatoes and spread them out over the surface of the pan. Let cook for five minutes.
  4. Stir potatoes once they start to crisp up. Sprinkle half of the seasoning on the potatoes. Continue to let the potatoes cook over medium heat, occasionally stirring lightly. Let them sit and get crispy.
  5. Keep cooking for 10-15 more minutes until the potatoes crisp up nicely. Add the rest of the spice seasoning near the end of cooking.
  6. Serve warm with eggs, if desired.
