Ingredients

  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 poblano pepper
  • 1/2 onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt (plus more to taste)
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot chili powder (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425F.  Give the potatoes and poblano a good rinse.
  • Dice up the potatoes into bite sized chunks, somewhere between 1/4" and 1/2" wide.  Dice up the poblano and 1/2 onion into slightly smaller sized chunks (be sure to discard the poblano seeds.)
  • In a mixing bowl combine the potatoes, poblano, 1/2 onion, 4 whole peeled garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and freshly cracked black pepper.  You can optionally add 1/2 teaspoon of hot chili powder. 
  • Spread the mixture into an even layer on a baking sheet.  (I line the baking sheet with parchment paper for easier cleanup but cooking them directly on the pan will crisp them up more.)
  • Bake at 425F for 30-40 minutes, stirring them at least once while they are baking.  
  • Take a final taste for seasoning.  I added another generous pinch of salt to this batch.  Serve immediately. 

Notes

I used 2 Russet potatoes but feel free to substitute what you have on hand -- 2 Russet potatoes is approx 2 lbs. worth. 
 
I usually add whole, peeled garlic cloves to avoid burning the garlic i.e. instead of minced garlic.  If using this method be sure to remove the garlic cloves before serving.
