Jalapeno Red Potatoes

Submitted by: BICKEY11

Introduction

Spicy Citrus Potates Spicy Citrus Potates
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    About 8-10 medium red potatoes (not baby reds)
    1 cup olive oil
    1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (about 6 limes)
    4 Fresh Jalapenos whole with stems cut off
    (seeded for less kick)
    Salt & Pepper to taste.

Tips

Keep in mind with this nutritional info, you won't be eating all the olive oil, so you can cut out about 1/2 the fat and cals from the olive oil.

This dish is amazing with grilled salmon. I put them on my plate and eat them together!


Directions

In a blender puree together the olive oil, 4 whole fresh jalapenos (or seeded ones for less kick) and 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice until most of the jalapenos are chopped finely.

Clean & Quarter the potatoes, leaving skin on (8-10 depending on size).

Place potatoes in pan, cover with the blended mixture, bring to a boil and simmer about 30 minutes until potatoes are tender without falling apart. The mixture will not cover the potatoes, so stir occassionally.

Remove from heat and keep in a ceramic hot pot for serving, or serve right away.

Serving Size: Makes about 1 large potato per 8 people

  • I haven't tried this yet but I am going to at the beginning of the month. It looks DElICIOUS! I'm not real worried about what the calorie count says because you don't use all the oil and also since it is a side, I might just have a smaller portion. - 8/14/12
