SPANISH POTATOES

Bonnie D. Recipe

By Bonnie D. Utahn

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!

    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!

    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.
