Roasted Potato Wedges with a Chipotle Dipping Sauce
How easy is this! Roasted potato wedges make for such a simple, beautiful and elegant side dish for burgers, steaks or just about anything that needs a potato accompaniment. They're also quick to come together with minimal ingredients, so skip the frozen bag in the freezer with 15+ ingredients and pull those potatoes out of the pantry to create this satisfying side or snack at home!
Potato Wedge Ingredients: (makes 16 wedges of potatoes)
- 2 large russet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon Spike gourmet natural seasoning, there are many flavors, so use what you have or pick one
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, divided
- Fresh chopped cilantro
Chipotle Dipping Sauce:
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (found in the Latin American section of most grocery stores), diced
- 3 tablespoons of the adobo sauce
- Fresh lime juice, from a wedge
- 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, roughly torn or chopped
Preheat oven to 375° and see below for chipotle dipping sauce. Start by washing and scrubbing your potatoes with a vegetable brush. Once cleaned, cut them in half and then cut each half into quarters, halve once more to get 8 healthy wedges per potato.
Drizzle the cut potatoes with olive oil in a large bowl, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with remaining salt, pepper, Spike seasoning and 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese. Again, and using a large spoon, toss the potatoes to thoroughly coat them.
Prepare a sheet pan by spraying with non-stick spray, then place the wedges skin side down in rows. Any remaining bits and oil from the bowl should be poured over the potatoes. Bake on the middle rack of a preheated oven for 35-40 minutes until browned.
While the wedges roast, make your adobo dipping sauce by simply combining the first four ingredients and garnish with the fresh cilantro.
The roasted potato wedges should come out of the oven browned, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside...
Top with the fresh cilantro and you're ready for plunging into the cooled chipotle dipping sauce...
