What do you do when you have a bag of potatoes and half a packet of taco seasoning staring you in the face? Make these Healthy Taco Seasoned Roasted Potatoes, of course. While it does sound a little out of left field, but they work quite nicely together. Look how crispy the potatoes got. Tickles my toes to see that crust on the potatoes and remember how fluffy they were on the inside while crispy on the outside. Remembering the flavor has me licking my lips, and thinking I should make them for dinner again tonight.
This is a fun side dish. The potatoes have that Mexican food taste in a subtle but oh so delicious way. They are kind of like Doritos meets roasted potatoes, well not kind of, that is exactly what happened. The taco seasoning was leftover from the copycat Doritos I made, Nacho Cheese Tortilla Chips. I still have a little bit of the taco seasoning left. I wonder what other scrumptious foods I can use it on. Stay tuned and find out.
