Southwestern-Style Potatoes Roasted with Peppers and Herbs





From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...
If you like roast potatoes, chances are you'll love this version which has a slightly Southwestern twist. The potatoes are topped with a medley of herbs and absorb additional flavor from three types of fresh peppers that roast along side them. There are a couple of tricks to making this dish work, but I assure you they are simple. To prevent the peppers and onions from releasing juices that would braise, rather than roast, the potatoes, hot becomes the operative word. The oven must be hot and the pan on which the vegetables roast must be hot enough to sizzle when the vegetables are dumped onto it. To assure a hot pan, place it in the oven as it preheats. Spray it with a nonstick vegetable spray or olive oil just before you place vegetables in it. Resist the temptation to oil the pan while it preheats. You'll end up with enough smoke to set off your alarms. This lesson comes from the been there, done that school of life which I've completed with high honors. These potatoes are a wonderful accompaniment to steaks and roasts and can make a plain meal sparkle with flavor. If I can get you to make them, I know they'll become a favorite of yours as well. While I make this with baby Yukon Gold, any small potato, including fingerlings, can be used with similar result. Leftovers can be warmed the following day and served with poached or fried eggs for a quick and easy feast. Here's the recipe for roast potatoes made new again.

Southwestern-Style Potatoes Roasted with Peppers and Herbs...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:

2-1/2 to 3 pounds small new potatoes, cut in half lengthwise
1 large red bell pepper, cut in 1/2-inch dice
1 large poblano pepper, cut in 1/2-inch dice
1 large jalapeno pepper, stemmed, seeded and cut in very thin crosswise slices
1 large sweet onion cut into 1/2-inch chunks
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon sweet smoked Spanish paprika (pimenton)
1 heaping teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely cracked black pepper
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Juice of 1 large lemon

Directions:
1) Place a large baking sheet into oven. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
2) Place potatoes, red pepper, poblano pepper, jalapeno pepper, sweet onion, basil, thyme, paprika, salt, pepper, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice in a large bowl and toss well to coat all ingredients. Quickly spray hot pan with nonstick spray. Dump potato mixture in a single layer onto pan. Return to oven.
3) Bake, turning mixture every 15 minutes, until potatoes are soft and brown, about 50 minutes. Yield 6 to 8 servings.

I love the flavors. Just beautiful! This is definitely something I'd love to try. There are more than enough variety of chillies to substitute for the missing poblano.

I just love the tiny potatoes that are available now. Potatoes sometimes get a bad rap, but I think they are one of the best things the Earth offers.

Danielle said...

What a lovely recipe! Great tips on the hot pan and oven.

Buongiorno Mary,
le patate arrosto sono uno dei miei piatti preferiti, anche se devo dire che mi piacciono in qualsiasi modo vengano cotte le patate.
E' un piatto che faccio spesso, però al posto dei peperoni io metto i pomodorini fatti a ciliegina e non metto la paprika ( al suo posto metto i semi di peperoncino piccante )e ne la Worcestershire che per noi italiani rimane troppo dolce.
Buona giornata

Joy said...

My mouth is watering so much I am keeping it clamped shut! Potatoes and red peppers are on the shopping list for tomorrow.
Fingers crossed my attempt ends up just like yours!

I love roasted vegetables. What a beautiful dish and thank you for the tip of heating the pan first. I'd never have thought of that.

Hello Mary!!

I make a similar dish like this one!!

From the Kitchen said...

The smoke alarm going off is what alerts my family that dinner's almost ready! I am going to do this recipe very soon. I do roast a lot of potatoes but usually with just S&P, olive oil and, sometimes, rosemary. I like the additional layers of flavor you have. I've recently been finding the small potatoes in purple, a mottled "magenta", golden and red. They make a spectacular-looking dish out of a potato. Thank for the recipe.

Best,
Bonnie

Penny said...

Carla and Michael said...

Mary, I love the use of all of the peppers and the smoked paprika in this dish. Especially the poblano, which has come to be a favorite of mine. Great reading too, who of us hasn't been initiated into the been there,done that school of life, especially in the kitchen. I'm having a hard time wiping the smile off of my face now. Thanks.

Valérie said...

This is certainly a change from the usual rosemary and garlic roasted potatoes... Definitely a keeper!

A Year on the Grill said...

on my list to make... love the idea of all the peppers!

Sue said...

What a beautiful recipe. I sometimes boil the potatoes just for a bit before I roast them to make things go a little faster. But they're never as good as when they're done the proper way, as you did them. Yum!

michelle said...

I am just discovering the MANY varieties of Paprika available!

Love the idea of the roasted potatoes with hot peppers.

Thank you for a fantastic dish that I know is going to become one of our favorites.
