You’re looking at your new go-to side or party appetizer! These delicious and unique Chili Tornado Potatoes are packed with flavor and are fun to make!


• 4 medium Yukon potatoes • 3 tablespoons butter, melted • 2 teaspoons kosher salt • 1 teaspoon black pepper • 1 teaspoon garlic powder • 1 teaspoon chili powder • 1 teaspoon ground cumin • 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco • cilantro, for garnish • hot sauce, for garnish


Step 1

Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

Before preparing, wash and thoroughly dry the potatoes. Pierce potatoes with a skewer (longways).

Step 3

Using a small paring knife, cut the potato into a spiral. After spiraling all your potatoes, place them on a lined baking sheet (you can use foil or parchment paper).

Step 4

Coat potatoes with melted butter and season with the mix.

Step 5

Bake the potatoes for 40 minutes. To ensure even cooking, turn the potatoes once halfway through. They should be tender on the inside, but crispy around the edges.

Step 6

Once tender and crispy, remove the potatoes from the oven and top with queso fresco, fresh cilantro, and seasoning mix.
