  1. Wonderful, crispy potatoes. We loved these and thought they were seasoned perfectly. I thought mixing the pototoes with sour cream was really different and was pleasantly surprise with the outcome. Crispy potatoes and with bright flavors!
  2. Very, very nice munchies, these! When making them I forgot that I was going to cut back on the amount of chili powder used, & am glad I ended making these as given, because they turned out just great! Will be making these again & again, whether for company or just for the 2 of us! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
  3. Just lovely! I've made lots of different oven fries recently and I think this one might top them all. Quick and easy! Made for Everyday's a holiday. Thanks for submitting a great tater recipe.
  4. Yummy! I tried one after baking for 20 mins. and they weren't crispy, so I had to let them for another 10 mins.. There was just the right amount of spice. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
  5. I was surprised! I had no idea how the sour cream/olive oil coating would work. It works-LOL! Nice, crisp potatoes and the spice mix worked out perfectly! I'd rather make these any day than fry fries! Made for CC 2014.


<p>I&nbsp;live in Seattle, but have also lived in the DC area, the Mid-west, California,&nbsp;the South, and New England,&nbsp;as&nbsp;well as China and India plus travel a fair bit, so I have experienced a good number of cuisines and like them all. I&nbsp;eat mostly vegetarian and mostly do a lot of scratch cooking. I am known for my creative use of leftovers and whatever is in the fridge. Too bad those recipes can't go easily into Zaar.</p>
