Vinegar and Coarse Salt Chipotle Roasted Potatoes

So Kristen over at Dine and Dish has a cool little adopt-a-blogger thing going on right now. Basically, a bunch of newbies get paired up with a more experienced blogger to serve as their "mentor". It sounded interesting so I signed up, what did I have to lose. I certainly don't know everything about the blogging world (or much at all actually). So I am paired up with Lys from Cooking in Stiletto's. She has a great blog with a bunch of fantastic recipes.

She just wrote up one that she got from Ingrid Hoffman from The Food Network for Vinegar Chipotle Roasted Potatoes and Coarse Salt . I was making steak tonight and was in need for a side dish. The husband is quite the meat and potatoes kind of guy so I knew this would work great.

These were good, I liked the flavor of the spices and the salt. I did leave off the olive oil so I'm sure there would have been extra flavor from that but they were good without it. I just sprayed a bit of cooking spray on them and with the vinegar and spices, they were fine.

The steak were just No Name Steaks marinated in a bit of garlic and worcestershire sauce with a lot of steak seasoning and pepper. It was a good meal. Thanks, Lys!
