I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. I could eat potatoes day and night, every day of the year and never get bored. So many varieties, they are essentially a starchy blank canvas to create so many spud inspired meals!

This is yet another potato recipe I came up with. When I’m cooking, I mentally through a list of what I have and if potatoes will go with a meal. You can cube them, shred them, bake them whole, or cut them into wedges.

The possibilities are endless, but right now, I am really and truly on a potato wedge kick. They are great for finger meals like a juicy hamburger or alongside skewers or kabobs.

This week I was hoping to switch flavors up a bit. Now I have a deep appreciation for a seasoned french fry and that sparked an idea. What different seasoning blends can I come up with?

Well, this one is based on the flavors of taco night. I sliced some gorgeous red potatoes into thick wedges and tossed them in some vegetable oil.

Then I took my homemade taco seasoning and sprinkled it all over the wedges until they were fully coated. A quick trip to the oven and voila!

You may think a potato is a potato and that they are all the same, but that would be like comparing a green apple to a red apple. They all have unique qualities that make them great for different recipes

Some are fantastic for baking whole while others are perfect for hashbrowns. There are those that make a perfect mashed potato and those that were destined for the fryer. Most (if not all), are great for roasting in the oven.

Red potatoes are great because they are high in moisture and low on starch. They also feature a thin skin. All of these attributes translate to the perfect roasted wedge.

This potato wedge recipe was created to serve with my Mexican Taco Burgers. I wanted the traditional French fry for my hamburgers but instead of the classic cut, I went with the wedge or steak cut.

Taco Burgers are a spicy mix of tacos and burgers! Topped with pico de gallo, avocado slices, jalapenos, pepper jack cheese and cool sour cream.

These save time and the headache of having to heat up hot oil. Another time saver time, albeit small, is to use premixed/packaged taco seasoning instead of mixing your own together.

Whether you make these baked potato wedges for a family meal or to serve at a bbq, they’ll be a hit that everyone will love! You might even find yourself making them on their own for lunch. (I won’t tell.)

Serve them with spicy ketchup or even spicy aioli for an extra kick!

Questions and Reviews

  1. 4 stars
    Very tasty, and just the right amount of spice!
    I used russet potatoes instead of red because that’s what I had on hand.

  2. 5 stars
    I found this recipe about a year ago and it’s one of my favorite sides! I make it probably twice a month.

    I use the seasoning mix on all kinds of things like veggies, french fries, and tons of other things.

    1. Thank you, Anthony! And for the tip on using the seasoning on other items. It is one of my favorites too.

  3. Is the sugar and the chili powder in the separate small bowl part of the spice mixture? At what point are those added?

    1. Hi Abigail, Chile powder through sugar means that you would combine all of the seasonings in the ingredient list between those two.
