Sauteed Potatoes in Red Pepper Oil

Robyn Bruce


This recipe is basically "home fries with heat". I LOVE the heat. This side dish, of course, can be served with anything but my favorite is to serve it with shish kebab. You can use either the really small new potatoes OR buy regular sized new potatoes and cut them into chunks as shown in my picture.
