Bursting with amazing flavor but super easy to prepare, these Chili Roasted Potatoes make the ultimate side dish to a good steak or grilled chicken!
Today’s dish was inspired by a recipe for chili roasted potatoes from the Texas Eats cookbook, which was written by Veteran Texas food writer Robb Walsh. Inspired by his travels through the Lone Star State, Mr. Walsh created a cookbook featuring recipes and stories from all across Texas. The classics like chicken fried steak and barbecued brisket are in the book, but the recipe for roasted potatoes really caught my eye.
I’m a big fan of roasted potatoes in general, but I hadn’t tried seasoning them with chili powder before. Why I hadn’t yet, I really have no clue. I mean, it’s one of my favorite seasonings after all, and this is such an easy side dish. Of course, I had to add a little extra smokiness to mine by throwing in some Smoked Paprika and Cumin because those three spices are amazing together.
Some white balsamic vinegar helps to season the potatoes from the inside out. It adds a hint of sweetness, which pairs perfectly with the other smoky flavors. These roasted potatoes are just bursting with delicious flavor!
