No that is not a Typo. This is one of the best Potato side dishes I've had in quite awhile! Crunchy and Spicy. These potatoes fit perfectly in any Mexican style entree. The inspiration for this came from Mexican Made Easy. Marcela made these and put them in a Burrito. But said they're too good on there own. Apparantly, everyone has their own unique spice blend for Patatas Bravas, I hope you enjoy mine!
