Chipotle and Lime Roasted Potatoes

Chipotle and Lime Roasted Potatoes
I cannot get enough roasted potatoes. My mom's roasted potatoes are still my favorite (extra crunchy please...I even enjoy them cold) but I am always on the lookout for new ways to roast potatoes.  This recipe from In Sock Monkey Slippers instantly piqued my interest.  I love lemony potatoes, so spicy lime potatoes sounded just perfect.  Please excuse the messy looking potatoes, I am still getting a bit used to how things cook at 8000 feet, especially in the oven.  Though they weren't beautiful, they tasted amazing, so still a winner in my book.
Chipotle and Lime Roasted Potatoes

2 pounds small new potatoes
1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 chipotle pepper from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
2 teaspoons adobo sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon lime zest
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Slice the potatoes into eighths and toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil and salt. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast for 35 to 45 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together the chipotle, adobo sauce, garlic, lime zest, lime juice and 2 teaspoons oil. When the potatoes are done roasting, add them to the chipotle lime sauce and toss to coat. Serve.
