plate of Southwest Fried PotatoesI love potatoes! So adding just about anything to them can really make a difference from the plain fried potatoes. These spicy fried potatoes go great with scrambled eggs, or they're just a nice meal all by themselves. You can add more or less of everything too.


Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 20 min

Total Time: 30 min max

Yield: 1-2




  1. Chunky cut your semi-cooked potatoes. Chop up the cilantro. Quarter cut the tomato(s). Thick slice the onions.
  2. In a cast iron skillet, heat up your oil or butter and add your chunked potato pieces and onion slices.
  3. onions & potatoes in skillet
  4. Now add your red pepper flakes, salt and garlic. Fresh garlic slices are the best, (I was out) so I used garlic powder which is okay too.
  5. seasoned Fried Potatoes & onions

  6. When your potatoes and onions are cooked, put in your tomato quarters and cook those. Add the cilantro last and flip that around for a minute. It's done.

Hi Suz! I love potatoes too! And I especially love this kind of potatoes so much. You know what's funny, though? I never make them very good at all for some reason. So much so that when I ask Matt how he wants his breakfast potatoes, he says not to make them like this cos I still need to learn-- ha ha!


And here come your directions! I'm trying this and I hope I do a good job! Thanks for sharing! Looks EXCELLENT!!! :)

Hi Attosa,

That is funny about the potatoes, because you're such a versatile cook, and these will be a cinch for you, and then you'll be hearing: When are you going to make these potatoes again? haha

I'm glad you're going to make them, and really, anything can go in them too :)
