Easy spicy roasted potatoes require just a few pantry ingredients to create a truly delicious side dish with a bit of a kick!


  • 1 1/2 pounds Yukon potatoes, cut in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


Preheat oven to 425.

Place potatoes on a large rimmed baking sheet. Toss potatoes with olive oil and seasonings, to get everything well coated. Spread out the potatoes evenly on the baking pan.

Roast at 425 for 25 minutes, shaking and/or scraping the pan after 15 minutes to rotate the potatoes so they roast on all sides.

Serve hot!

Recipe Notes

I use Yukon gold potatoes because they are one of my faves. And the larger ones are great for making wedge potatoes. Feel free to substitute your favorite kind of potato to roast.

I cut mine into wedges, but you could certainly chop your potatoes any which way and just keep an eye on the oven time until they are finished.

You can of course serve these with ketchup, but I also love to have them with some plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream) for dipping. Add in a squeeze of lime juice or a sprinkle of cilantro if you like.
