Fiesta Potato Smashers Recipe
Fiesta Potato Smashers
- 5 small Yellow potatoes
- 5 small Red potatoes
- 1 pint sweet mini peppers (red, orange and yellow)
- 8 sprigs cilantro, picked from stems and chopped
- cooking spray or olive oil
- salt, pepper, chili powder
- Place whole potatoes (do not poke) into microwave-safe covered dish. Microwave on HIGH for 3 to 4 minutes.
- While potatoes are cooking, cut mini peppers into small ¼-inch slices. Spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray and heat to medium. Add peppers and sauté until they become slightly soft and start to brown. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Remove potatoes from microwave and, using a layer of paper towels covering each potato, smash them on a cutting board until 1 ¾-inch thick. Helpful tip: Use the side of a coffee cup or flat cooking utensil to smash the potatoes.
- Spray sauté pan with cooking spray or add 2 tbsp olive oil to a pan, heat on high, and add smashed potatoes in a single layer. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until potatoes start to brown on both sides.
- On a plate, place potatoes and layer with sour cream or yogurt (optional), peppers and cilantro. Dust with salt, chili powder and pepper to taste. Serve warm.
