First, my apologies. With all the holiday craziness, I’ve gotten a wee bit behind on the posting, but the good news is that we’ve been cooking the entire time. We’ve got some great stuff to share with you including this super yum alternative to regular roasted potatoes. It’s crazy easy.

You just peel and chop some russet potatoes and make up a Mexican style dressing, shake it up in a jar (my kid’s fave) and then bake it in the oven. Just before serving, give it a squirt of lime. It’s a great Mexican roasted potato recipe.

Serve it as a side with Crock Pot Fajitas, or better yet let your vegetarian friends fill their fajitas with these potatoes instead. Now for the recipe…

    @ctb, you can really use any amount of potatoes and adjust the seasonings. just make sure they are well coated with the dressing so they taste good. the lime is KEY. don't skip it!
