Patatas Bravas Recipe Made with Casa Bonita Chipotle Salsa and Tajin

Mexican Style Patatas Bravas with Casa Bonita Salsa

Are you looking for some ideas on how to incorporate Casa Bonita Salsas into different dishes? We recently started a collaboration series with our friend Lisa Dickie from Dickie’s Cooking School to come up with some fun recipes!

These recipes are a series of different “ways you didn’t know you could use Casa Bonita Salsas.”

The first stop is a traditional Spanish recipe with a Mexican twist incorporating our Fire Roasted Chipotle Salsa.

Let’s start with what you need:

+ Large pot
+ Large pan
+ Cutting board
+ Drying rack
+ Sharp knife
+ Vegetable peeler
+ Paper towel
+ Tongs/Spider

Next, let’s talk about the essentials (aka the ingredients).

2 pounds of Russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1” cubes
1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
1 teaspoon of paprika
1⁄2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 bay leaves
2 cups of sunflower/vegetable/canola oil
For the Bravas Sauce:
1⁄2-1 cup of Casa Bonita Fire Roasted Chipotle Salsa
1 good dash of Tajin Mild Hot Sauce
1⁄4 – 1⁄2 cup of mayonnaise
1 teaspoon of paprika
Optional: chopped parsley/cilantro to garnish.

Now, Let’s learn how to prepare it! Follow these directions:

Step 1: Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with at least 4 inches of water. Add cumin seeds, bay leaves, baking soda salt and paprika. Set the heat to high.
Step 2: Simmer the potatoes for at least 10 minutes – you should be able to easily pierce with a paring knife.
Step 3: Strain the potatoes and allow to cool and dry completely on a drying rack. If you don’t have a drying rack place them on a tea towel over a baking sheet. They should be completely dry before you fry them.
Step 4: While the potatoes are drying, making your Bravas sauce. Combine salsa, Tajin Mild Hot Sauce and
paprika. Mix in 1⁄4 cup of mayo. Taste. Add more mayo/salsa to your tastes.

Step 5: In a large skillet, heat 2 cups of oil until it shimmers (if you have a thermometer, you want it to be 340 degrees. Gently add in the potatoes and cook until golden brown.
Remove from heat and blot with a paper towel.
Step 6: Place potatoes in a bowl and drizzle with your roasted salsa Bravas sauce. Top with cilantro/parsley and serve.
