Roasted Red Potatoes with Smoked Paprika

I found this recipe on and just had to try it out.

– 6-8 large red potatoes, skin on
– 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
– 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
– 3 tablespoons olive oil
– 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
– big dash of kosher salt and fresh ground pepper

(I like my food spicy, so I added quite a bit more of the smoked paprika and the garlic powder.)

First preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut up the potatoes into 1-2 inch pieces and add them to a bowl. Then mix the smoked paprika, garlic powder, chives, and olive oil – in another bowl.

Add the spice mix to the potatoes and make sure they are completely covered.

Then spread the potatoes evenly on a cookie sheet before putting them in the oven for about 30-35 minutes. Turn them over halfway through.

When they are done sprinkle with salt and pepper and enjoy!

Just a tip: The original recipe calls for fresh chives, but since I didn’t have any I just used dried ones. However, when these were roasted they ended up tasting somewhat burned. So if you do the same I would recommend not adding them until the potatoes are close to being done, or even just right before eating.

  1. These look great! If you like spicy smoked paprika, we use La Chinata brand smoked paprika. I have to buy it online from Amazon but it’s worth it. It’s the best smoked paprika I have ever found. It comes in sweet, bittersweet and hot. We buy all of them. Baby Lady loves the hot!
