A tasty variation of the old standby, home fries. Adding ground cumin and sassy chipotle pepper to sautéed potatoes (small red or waxy Idaho potatoes work best) brings out a great flavor and adds a golden color to the dish. And the richly nutritious potatoes get an added boost from the proven health benefits of cumin, shown to be a good source of iron and an aid to digestion. Rinsing and draining the cut potatoes very well before cooking removes the surface starch and makes for a nice browning in the pan, and be patient — the less you disturb the cooking, the richer the flavor will be.
