Fiesta Potato Bites 5.00/5 (1 vote)

These little bites combine the best of two worlds - crispy potatoes and Mexican flavors! Sounds a little odd? Think of them as a potato skin, but much easier to make and a little smaller; which means you can eat more! Pull out your mandoline to make quick work of the slicing. (I cut my potatoes a little too thin, which worked ok, and they cooked faster.) You'll love the bite of the crispy potato, it's hidden creamy center, and smokey vegetables. Simply delicious.
