Chili Oil Smashed Potatoes Recipe:


  • 1.5 pounds baby potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chili oil (store-bought or homemade)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, for extra heat)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Add the baby potatoes and cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain and let them cool slightly.
  3. Place the potatoes on the prepared baking sheet. Use a fork or a potato masher to gently smash each potato, flattening them to about 1/2 inch thick.
  4. Drizzle the smashed potatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden and crispy.
  6. While the potatoes are baking, prepare the chili oil mixture. In a small bowl, mix together the chili oil, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes.
  7. Remove the crispy potatoes from the oven and drizzle with the chili oil mixture. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy!
