Spanish Hot Potatoes

Potato recipe competition - Spanish Hot Potatoes

Spanish Hot Potatoes


  • One large potato per person, the size normally used for baked potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Ground dried garlic
  • Ground dried paprika
  • One small red chilli pepper per person
  • Nasturtium flowers or leaves and fresh figs to garnish


Firstly, boil the whole potatoes still with their skins on for about 25 minutes in salted water.  When they are semi cooked remove them from the water and leave to cool on a plate.  Cut into thick slices lengthways, about 2cm each, leaving the skins on. Lay the slices out in a baking tray with a thin amount of olive oil in and sprinkle the slices with ground dried garlic and paprika.  Chop up one fresh, small red chilli pepper for each potato used. Add the chopped peppers to the slices of potatoes evenly.  Bake for 10 minutes and serve hot. They can be cooked for the last 10 minutes of a roast lamb or chicken dinner and served together or just cooked as a lovely lunch time snack.  Add edible nasturtium flowers for decoration and flavour.

Sharon says, “They are absolutely delicious, colourful and spicy hot.”
