Chipotle and Lime Roasted Potatoes

182 | July 9, 2012

What a month it has been! I didn’t think moving to a different city would be so exhausting and would take this long to return to normal. Although, I’m not really sure how normal one can really be if they wear sock monkey slippers and cowboy boots on a daily basis. As far as I am concerned I am never moving again. Thanks for your patience and support! As always, y’all are amazing. I am glad to be back in the kitchen and back on the blog again. And what a way to kick it off with my favorite summer side dish, Chipotle and Lime Roasted Potatoes!

This dish was created out of a need to use leftover chipolte peppers five years ago and has stuck around ever since. Smoky and spicy with a fresh hint of lime these Chipolte Lime Roasted Potatoes are the perfect side for your next summer meal.

Chipolte and Lime Roasted Potatoes serves 4 to 6

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds small new potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 chipolte pepper from a can of chipolte peppers in adobo sauce*
  • 2 teaspoons adobo sauce
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
* chipolte peppers in adobo sauce can be found canned in most major grocery stores.
Preheat oven to 400°F. With a knife, slice the potatoes in half.
Place the halved potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the potatoes. Add salt and toss with your hands until the potatoes are thoroughly coated with oil and salt. Place in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, stirring once, until golden and can be easily pierced with a fork.

While the potatoes are cooking: Remove one chipolte pepper from the can and mince (chop into small pieces). Place in a large bowl. Using the adobo sauce that the peppers are packaged in, add 2 teaspoons of sauce to the minced pepper in the bowl. Oh, how I love me a chipolte pepper. It does sinful things to my taste buds.

Peel and mince the garlic glove. Add it to the bowl as well.

Next, add the lime zest, lime juice, and the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil.

Whisk everything together until combined. Now, take a good whiff. The smell is intoxicating.

Once the potatoes are done and still hot, pour them into the chipolte lime dressing. Add cilantro and gently stir to combine, making sure every potato is covered.

Plate and serve. Shut the front door, these are sinfully good! This is a perfect side for grilled chicken, grilled pork chops, steak, smoked brisket or even fajitas. And if there are leftovers, cook them with some scrambled eggs in the morning for an insanely good breakfast. Enjoy!

    What a terrific recipe. Of course, by the time I have spent the day smoking brisket, what I really want is a big refreshing bowl of fruit–melon, peaches, berries, mixed up in whatever combo looks good at the time. Corn in summer, roasted veggies the rest of the year.

    I love to make a peach and tomato quinoa salad. Cook the quinoa in chicken broth with a few sprigs of fresh thyme. On the side, saute tomatoes and peaches with a bit of garlic. The tomatoes and peaches will reduce and just pour the liquid over the quinoa. Add some fresh basil or mint at the end and it’s delicious!
