We went to a street food festival yesterday, and it was a very nice event. I think that the rain earlier on the day had scared some visitors away, but when we were there, the weather was lovely and sunny. I want to write a post about the festival next week, so stay tuned.
Now to these spicy chipotle potatoes. I found some great potatoes on the market, and decided to make a Mexican style dish with them. I cooked them thrice, first boiled, then fried crispy and finally cooked with the spices. They were great, and went really well with the black eyed peas, sweetcorn and red bell pepper. I used some chilli cheese in this recipe, but it's only optional. The recipe is also very easy to veganise by skipping or replacing the cheese. Have a look below at my recipe.
Chipotle potatoes with black eyed peas
500 g potatoes
1 red bell pepper
2 cups cooked black eyed peas
1 small can of sweetcorn
2 garlic cloves
1 chipotle chilli
Smoked paprika to taste
Ground cumin to taste
Ground coriander to taste
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
Mexican oregano to taste
50 g chilli cheese (optional)
Boil the potatoes until they are done. Fry them in oil until they have a crispy surface. Set them to side.
Cook the black eyed peas until they are done.
Chop the bell pepper, onion, garlic and chilli.
Heat vegetable oil in a pan.
Cook the onions, garlic, chilli and bell pepper until soft.
Add the spices, beans and sweetcorn to the mix and let cook for a while.
Then also add the potatoes.
Serve with fresh coriander and enjoy!
