I love everything with a little spicy kick so I make these with my mexican foods as a side. (even though I use cajun spice) You can add as much or as little as you prefer, I like mine spicy! : ) These are simple easy and quick but pack an amazing taste!!

How to Make Crisp and Spicy Fried Red Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil potatos for a few minutes but not all the way through. Just long enough to soften them a tiny bit. Then drain well, careful not to bruise (they should not be really soft) Allow to cool off completely.
  2. In a large bowl add potatoes and seasoning to taste. I add alot of garlic and cajun spice) and gently toss potatoes till completely covered. Add more seasoning if needed to cover all potatoes.
  3. In a large skillet heat veg oil and add potatoes. Fry until cooked through and the outsides are browned and crispy.
  4. Add a few pats of butter to top and gently toss potatoes. Fry a few minutes more.
