  1. Pour olive oil into the bottom of a slow cooker. Layer onion slices over the oil. Add green chile peppers, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, sugar, garlic, salt, and pepper. Layer potatoes on top, seasoning each layer with a sprinkle of salt and red pepper flakes.
  2. Cook on High until potatoes are tender, 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Stir gently before serving.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute coconut oil for the olive oil if preferred.
  • Leftovers reheat very well in the microwave or on the stove. Could be added the next day to a spicy breakfast burrito with scrambled eggs and steak or sausage wrapped in a tortilla.

Tasted great, but the potatoes got a skin on them. Recommend not cooking quite as long.

Loved the flavor combo but my potatoes did stick and burn to the bottom. I recommend stirring them half way through.
