Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb russet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch thick wedges
  • 1 1/2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp Mexican seasoning blend
  • 1 cup Mexican shredded cheese blend
  • 1/4 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 3 Tbs canned diced green chilies
  • Salsa, guacamole, and sour cream (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Place potatoes into a medium bowl with the oil, garlic salt, and Mexican seasoning. Stir well to coat potatoes.
  • Transfer to a large baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring several times, until crisp and golden brown.
