Taco Potatoes

Knowing that I'm big into trying new and easy recipes my parents brought me back a cookbook from their fall trip down to Sedona Arizona.  Full of mouthwatering southwestern favorites, it's a bunch of recipes from Red Rock Country.  For those of you unfamiliar with Sedona it's north of Phoenix and famous for its spectacular red rocks. 

This taco potato recipe I've made multiple times and really enjoyed.  It's a great side dish, or if you're a potato lover like me, its a whole meal.  

Recipe from: Sipapu Lodge
Servings: 6


6 medium Potatoes (with or without peels)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Oregano
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 small Onion, diced
1/4 cup Butter
Garnish: Sour Cream and Parsley

1. Cube the potatoes and cook with or without the peels, then drain thoroughly.
2. Place the potatoes in a baking dish and combine all the other ingredients, except the items for garnishing.
*Note: I cook the onion in a skillet while the potatoes are cooking and add the cooked onion to the baking dish to cut back on the raw onion flavor.  Also added Red Bell Pepper and it works too.
3. Heat in oven until heated and butter is melted.
4. Serve with sour cream and parsley as garnish.
*Note: I have served it with cilantro as well. And you don't even have to garnish it at all and it's great!
