Flipping through my list of favorite blogs, I found the answer to all of my roasted potato questions on Chocolate & Zucchini. After I read her post, the clouds parted and the sun shone down on me. I set to work immediately, scrubbin' and choppin' my potatoes.
All kinds of potatoes will work for this recipe. Fill up a large pot with salted water while you clean and cut your taters.
When the water reaches a boil, toss them in and let them cook for 5 minutes. They won't be fully cooked; this is just a head start. Turn your oven on to a very high heat around 450 degrees.
Carefully toss your hot potatoes in a drizzle of olive oil and season to taste. I made these spicy with chili powder, pepper, and chili pepper. Don't forget the salt.
