Bonnie's notes for this recipe:
I like that this is an easy, tasty and healthy side dish, and since my family eats a lot of potatoes, I am pleased to find another way to prepare them. Lots of flavor in this dish and only 1 tablespoon of olive oil!! Enjoy!

Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15 minutes or until tender.

Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Drain potatoes; add onion mixture and stir gently to coat. Salt and pepper to taste. Add raw chopped tomatoes and fold in gently and serve.
Cook's tip: You may omit the 1/2 cup water and beef or chicken granules and substitute 3/4 can of chicken or beef broth instead.

These sound really good and easy.

They were good. The original recipe didn't call for salt and pepper, but I thought it needed it for us. I can think of some other things I would like to add to this dish, like jalepeno peppers. Let me know what you do with it, Donna! LOL!

Hey, Bonnie this does sound real good, will have to try them...JalapeƱos sound like a great idea, or salsa maybe?
user Bonnie D. Utahn - Sep 6, 2010
Yes, that sounds good, JoSele! Hey, how ya been?

Oh, by the way, ladies, I didn't have any bell pepper so I put some ortega chilis chopped up in the potatoes instead. My husband liked this dish. I want a little more heat. I'm going to add it to the rotation. It is low fat preparation, too with only one TB of olive oil.
