Spicy Potato Wedges are the best. My preference is to marinate cooked wedges of Potatoes in chipotle spices infused oil. And roast them after they had a bit of rest. In a steaming hot skillet

Probably you have had Patatas Bravas. When enjoying some sun in Spain. Or ordering some Tapas at your local Spanish Bar. Patatas Bravas actually means Spicy Potatoes. My spicy Potatoes are marinated with Chipotle Spices. This mix is a blend of powdered Peppers, smoked Paprika, Garlic, Coriander and more. And due to this marinade,  each potato wedge is fully infused with spiciness. No better hot dish to eat on a sunny day!
