My typical seasoning for roasting vegetables is pretty simple, olive oil, salt, pepper and possibly a little rosemary. As I am constantly looking for some new sides, I am starting to investigate some different seasonings. This one adds a bit of cayenne.
While they were very good, the cayenne was pretty subdued. Next time I would increase the quantity that I used.
One of those potatoes was a little more than a medium size.
I decided to dice the potatoes and other veggies to a 1/2-3/4″ dice.

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes
Prep Time: 15 m | Cook Time: 55 m | Makes: 4 servings
- 5 medium red potatoes, diced with peel
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
- Red, yellow or orange pepper (optional)
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Arrange the potatoes and onions in a greased 9×13 inch baking dish so that they are evenly distributed. Season with garlic powder, salt and chili powder. Drizzle with olive oil. Stir to coat potatoes and onions with oil and spices.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until potatoes are fork tender and slightly crispy. Stir every 10 minutes. When done, sprinkle with cheese. Wait about 5 minutes for the cheese to melt before serving.
