Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Chipotle Garlic Sauce
Crisp and salty on the outside with fluffy baked potato inside, these fingerling potatoes are a great way to change up the average weeknight meal. Fingerling potatoes are much quicker to prep and roast than baked potatoes or oven fries; there is virtually no work involved. No slicing or dicing the potatoes, just wash, drizzle with oil, sprinkle generously with salt and toss them in the oven. While they are roasting, whip together the sauce and you will have a side dish that people will still be talking about the next day.
My kids and I liked these potatoes so much, we ate the whole batch while they were still hot off the tray and I didn't even bother with the rest of the lunch I had planned. My older son and I loved the Chipotle Garlic Dipping Sauce. (I can not get enough of this stuff; I've been putting it on almost everything lately!) If you aren't a fan of spicy heat, I recommend you try this Po'dunk Sauce or Ranch Dip; they are both delicious with roasted potatoes.
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Chipotle Garlic Dipping Sauce
Yield: 4-6 servings
2 lbs fingerling potatoes, washed and patted dry
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon kosher salt (much of this will wind up on the baking tray)
Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 chipotle peppers, I used mine straight from the freezer
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar, I used the garlic infused vinegar from our preserved garlic
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the potatoes on a large baking sheet and prick holes in each one with a fork. Drizzle them with oil and then use your hands to coat them thoroughly. Sprinkle the potatoes with salt. Roast the potatoes until they are fork tender, about 25 minutes.
While the potatoes are cooking, combine all the sauce ingredients in a blender or small food processor. Puree until smooth and creamy. Transfer to an airtight container and chill until ready to serve. Enjoy!
