Recipe of the Month: Cumin and Chipotle Spiced Potatoes

A tasty variation of the old standby, home fries. Adding ground cumin and sassy chipotle pepper to sautéed potatoes brings out a great flavor and adds a golden color to the dish. And the richly nutritious potatoes get an added boost from the proven health benefits of cumin, shown to be a good source of iron and an aid to digestion. Rinsing and draining the cut potatoes very well before cooking removes the surface starch and makes for a nice browning in the pan and be patient – the less you disturb the cooking, the richer the flavor will be.
