Recipe Tips and Delicious Variations

  • Cut the potatoes to the same size so they cook at the same rate.
  • Cook for a bit longer if you want slightly more caramelised potatoes.
  • Add extra foil - Sometimes doubling the foil is a great way to keep in the steam and liquid the food cooks in.
  • Vary the spices - feel free to use taco seasoning or another seasoning to your taste.
  • Add heat - chili powder, cayenne, or chipotle are easy ways to add some heat.
