1teaspooncoconut sugar (secret ingredient that enhances the overall spices!)
1/4teaspoonchipotle chile powder (adds another layer of smoky and spicy) optional
FOR THE POTATOES
2poundsred or gold skinned potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/2 inch pieces
11/2 tablespoonsof the above spice mix (use 2 for spicier potatoes)
1teaspoonfine sea salt
Preheat an oven to 400°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Combine the taco spices into a small bowl and whisk very well until thoroughly mixed.
Make sure your potatoes are diced in the similar sizes so they bake evenly. 1/2 inch pieces bake beautifully and get cirspy edges. Add the peeled potatoes to a large bowl. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of the taco seasoning (use 2 tablespoons for spicier potatoes) and add the salt as well. You will have extra seasoning leftover.
Use your hands to toss the potatoes repeatedly until all are very well and thoroughly coated.
Spread the potatoes out evenly onto the prepared pan, making sure they aren't overlapping.
Bake on the middle rack for 25-30 minutes until very well browned and the edges are crispy. Eat right away. I love, loved these dipped into my Poblano Pepper Cream Sauce, but have also eaten them inside tacos with black beans, corn, vegan cheese and drizzle of poblano pepper cream sauce on top of the tacos. They'd also be amazing in burritos or Mexican burrito bowls.
