These spicy roasted potatoes made with chili powder and other seasonings are a slight variation to standard home fries. I make these spicy spuds for breakfast every Sunday, and my family loves them!

  • 5 medium red potatoes, diced with peel

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Evenly distribute potatoes and onions in the prepared baking dish. Season with garlic powder, kosher salt, and chili powder. Drizzle with olive oil and stir until well coated.
