So if you are from the Midwest, you might know what I’m talking about when I say ‘potato oles’. From Taco Johns. My version, along with the fish, takes about 30 minutes to make but it’s pretty freaking good. Also it’s cheaper and will make you feel good 🙂
Basically, dice up some sweet potatoes, put them in a large bowl, add some oil (coconut, olive, bacon fat, which ever you choose) to lightly coat the potatoes. Then, dump some taco seasoning (I blend my own) in the bowl and toss to coat. I also tossed in some chopped green onion and fresh ground pepper. From there, cook on the stove top or bake until tender. Like I said, not identical to potato oles put super tasty!
I ate these potatoes with ‘White Fish Vera Cruz’, which you can find in the frozen section at trader Joe’s. It has great flavor and takes about 20 minutes to bake – it’s basically fish, seasoning and veggies. Simply and kinda spicy. I had some red cabbage on hand, so I put that under the fish and squeezed a lemon on top when everything was done. Oh, and cilantro. Because I basically put cilantro on everything.
Yes, it tasted as good as I looks. Do you live near a TJ? Would you try these potatoes?
