Cowboy Potatoes

This recipe is my tribute to relocation, from warm sea breezes in Florida, to HOT HOT Arizona.  We arrived July 29, 2011,  just in time for the record heat in August,  many days above 110 degrees, ridiculous!  Cooler weather has finally arrived, we may survive...


  • 3 pounds red potatoes, ¼'d
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne(or less)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, fresh ground, 

Preheat oven to 425.  Combine spices.  Toss potatoes in olive oil and spread out on sheet pan.  

Bake for 40-50 minutes until nicely  browned.  

Halfway through baking toss garlic and onion with potatoes, and sprinkle spice mixture.  Allow potatoes to develop nice brown crust, stirring to avoid over browning.
