Patatas Payesa

Recipe by Moor Driver

A lovely tapas dish full of flavour. Roasted potatoes with sweet peppers. Use whichever colour peppers you prefer.

I chose to cube the potatoes and to cut various colors of peppers into similarly sized/shaped pieces. I also added some diced sweet onion and cooked the onion with the peppers. Excellent dish!
