In summertime, when the temperatures are especially hot, I’m always looking for dishes that work well at room temperature, as well as recipes that offer a twist on your classic summer dishes. This bowl of Chipotle and Lime Roasted Potatoes from Tasty Kitchen member Meredith of Cooking In Sock Monkey Slippers was just that. It was great hot or warm or room temperature and the dressing was addictive and could work well on many other summer salads.

Description

Smoky and spicy with just a flash of fresh lime creates a side dish perfect for any summer meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Small New Potatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 whole Chipotle Pepper Packed In Adobo Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Adobo Sauce
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon Grated Lime Zest
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice
  • 2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Chopped Cilantro

Preparation Instructions

Note: Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce can be found canned in most major grocery stores (typically in the Mexican food section).

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. With a knife, slice the potatoes in half. Place the halved potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the potatoes. Add salt and toss with your hands until the potatoes are thoroughly coated with oil and salt. Place in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, stirring once, until golden and the potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork.

2. While the potatoes are cooking: Remove one chipotle pepper from the can and mince it (chop into small pieces). Place it in a large bowl. Using the adobo sauce that the peppers are packaged in, add 2 teaspoons of sauce to the minced pepper in the bowl.

3. Peel and mince the garlic clove. Add it to the bowl as well.

4. Next, add the lime zest, lime juice and 2 teaspoons of olive oil.

5. Whisk everything together until combined.

6. Once the potatoes are done and still hot, pour them into the chipotle lime dressing. Add cilantro and gently stir to combine, making sure every potato is covered. Plate and serve.

Can’t wait to try this one! Looks like a dish I would love to make — I will add sweet potatoes to the mix as my husband loves them.
