Ingredients for baked potatoes

  • Potatoes, use small potatoes such as fingerlings or small potatoes.
  • Mexican spice blend
  • Olive oil or vegetable oil
  • To finish: lime juice, salt, and if you want, you can serve them with avocado cream or creamy green sauce (avocado sauce with tomatillo and serrano chili).

How to make Mexican baked potato

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (about 400 degrees Fahrenheit).

Wash the potatoes thoroughly under running water to remove any dirt. You can leave the skin on if you like, as it will crisp up during baking.

Dry the potatoes and cut them into wedges or cubes, according to your preference.

Place the potatoes in a large bowl. Add the olive oil and Mexican spice mix. Mix everything well to ensure the potatoes are well coated with the oil and spices.

Place the potatoes on a baking sheet. Make sure they are in a single layer with space between them so they bake evenly.

Bake the potatoes for about 40-50 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. You can turn them over halfway through the cooking time so that they brown evenly.

When they are ready, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, take them out and finish them with the juice of lime and chopped cilantro. Check to season and adjust if necessary.
