A healthy and simple take on a classic Spanish tapas dish, Patatas Bravas. Full of crisp potatoes, fresh herbs and a flavorful red sauce, this is the perfect small plate to share with those you love!


  • 2 lbs red skin potatoes, washed and cubed
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives, chopped (plus a few more for topping)
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 6 oz can Tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp Texas Pete hot sauce (or other hot sauce)*
  • Topping options: fresh parsley or fresh chives


  1. Soak the chopped potatoes in hot water for 10-15 minutes. Drain and thoroughly dry.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
  3. Dry the potatoes then toss with 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and 2 Tbsp chives.
  4. Bake the potatoes 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and easily poked with a fork.
  5. While the potatoes are cooking, make the sauce. In a skillet, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil, 2 Tbsp chives, and about a 1/2 tsp of sea salt. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Add the smoked paprika, red pepper, and stir. Then add the tomato paste, hot sauce, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Simmer 10-12 minutes.
  7. Remove the sauce from heat and set it aside.
  8. Remove the potatoes from the oven and sprinkle with sea salt to taste. Divide into 4 serving dishes and top with sauce and fresh herbs.
