I came up with this attractive side dish when my best friend unexpectedly stayed for dinner. While my husband grilled pork chops, I perked up potatoes with tasty taco fixings. The results received rave reviews. This recipe is even quicker to fix with leftover baked potatoes. -Penny Dykstra Porterville, California

I tried this recipe last night and it was a hit with my family! The potatoes were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The spices gave it a nice kick without being too spicy.
