Try this variation of classic roasted potatoes the next time you want to spice up your suppertime repertoire—their coating made of smoky chipotle chilies and tangy sour cream is guaranteed to be a hit. The chipotles add heat while the sour cream helps to cool your mouth just in time. You can cut the heat in this recipe by using half to three quarters the amount of the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Drizzle the piping hot potatoes with freshly squeezed lime to juice bring all the flavors together. Either roasted or grilled pork, steak, or chicken and a crisp salad would make excellent partners for rounding out a meal.


Cooking spray

1 spray(s)

Reduced-fat sour cream

½ cup(s)

Canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

2 tsp, minced

Table salt

½ tsp, or to taste

Black pepper

½ tsp, freshly ground, or to taste

Uncooked red potato(es)

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together sour cream, chipotle peppers, salt and black pepper; add potatoes and toss to coat.
  3. Transfer potatoes to prepared baking sheet and roast until golden brown and tender, turning potatoes once or twice during roasting so they brown evenly, about 40 to 45 minutes. Sprinkle with lime juice before serving. Yields about 2/3 cup per serving.
