Simple Southwest Potatoes | Crumbs and Chaos #sidedish #potatoes www.crumbsandchaos.net The beauty of taking a little help from the freezer section for dinner is, that while you’re working on the main dish, your potatoes are baking away.  I chose to season mine simply and sprinkle them with a little bit of shredded cheese because potatoes and cheese just go together.  Adding fresh cilantro and finely chopped green onion brings the flavor explosion.  Don’t forget the dipping sauce – a little greek yogurt and hot sauce spices things up just a bit.  The potatoes come cut in chunks small enough to stab with a fork or big enough to be a finger food should you want to enjoy these as an appetizer for game day.

Want to make this a main dish?  Top with seasoned ground turkey or ground beef, pork carnitas or cafe rio chicken and dinner is served ;)

Simple Southwest Potatoes

This recipe for Simple Southwest Potatoes is easy to make and packed with flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 (32 oz.) bag ALEXIA SMART CLASSICS TRI-CUT POTATOES
  • 1 Tablespoon TACO SEASONING
  • 1/2 cup PLAIN YOGURT (or sour cream)
  • 1 Tablespoon HOT SAUCE (I used Frank's Red Hot - use more if you'd like it spicier)
  • SHREDDED CHEESE (use as much as you like)
  • FRESH CILANTRO, chopped
  • GREEN ONION, finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Bake potatoes according to package directions.
  2. Make dipping sauce: mix together yogurt and hot sauce, set aside.
  3. When potatoes are done baking, sprinkle with taco seasoning and stir together to coat all of the potatoes. You can sprinkle on the cheese now and put back in the oven until the cheese is melted. Or if your serving dish is oven safe, you can put the potatoes in the serving dish and then top with cheese and put back into the oven to melt cheese.
  4. Sprinkle with cilantro and green onion. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.

    Our favorite winter snack is Cajun spiced dehydrated zucchini chips, with a simple Greek-yogurt with a package of dry Ranch dressing mixed in… so good!!

    We love potatoes–they’re pretty much the only vegetables all of my kids will eat. And with cheese AND dipping sauce! These would be a huge hit at my house!
