Chili roast potatoes

This is just the easiest potato recipe there is and for me one of the most delicious ones. We all know that potatoes can be cooked in a hundred different ways, as a side dish or a main dish, it’s even used in some dessert recipes. Some even eat fries dipping them in milkshakes and in Japan there is chocolate covered fries in McDonald’s.

This recipe is a bit more traditional, served usually with pork roast or roasted duck. A month ago I went with friends for a weekend in Lika, where my friend has an estate. There was a lot of alcohol, a lot of food, and for two nights in a row we roasted potatoes as a side dish to barbecue pork. I’m mentioning this because in my recipe there is just one onion used and this friend likes to put a lot of onions with his roast potatoes, so that he doesn’t get offended or confused by the amount of onion used, there is a special tip for him: Use as many onions as you wish! 

But seriously guys, this recipe is easy, the crispy chili potatoes are just delicious, and they work so well with all kinds of meat you prefer. Hope you’ll like them and stay tuned for more delicious recipes!
