Ok, so you just made a delicious Southwestern Breakfast Quesadilla , but you need a side dish…

What do you do?

You make some cilantro and lemon roasted potatoes! DUH!

I LOVE roasted potatoes. My “go to” seasonings are rosemary, garlic, and olive oil, but I’m always trying to experiment with new flavor combinations.


With these potatoes, I was trying to stick with the Mexican theme of the quesadilla, but I still wanted something somewhat simple. If you haven’t noticed, I am all about simple cooking that utilizes fresh, wholesome ingredients.

After looking through my spice rack, I just pulled out a few spices that I thought would go well together and would stick with the Southwestern aspect of the recipe.

These were simply amazing.



  • 1 LBS yukon gold potatoes, diced
  • 3 TBS olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 TBSP chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 TBSP lemon juice


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients except the cilantro and the lemon.
  3. Roast for 30-40 minutes, flipping the potatoes half way through cooking.
  4. Toss with cilantro and lemon before serving.


Who else absolutely drools over roasted potatoes?
