  • Serves:4
  • Prep Time: 20 min
  • Cook Time: 20 min


  • 2.5 pounds russet potatoes, scrubbed clean and sliced into ¼-inch thick rounds
  • cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder

For Serving

  • Pickled or raw jalapeño sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

  2. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Spread the sliced potatoes out on the baking sheet and using a paper towel, pat them dry. Drizzle them with the olive oil.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder and salt. Sprinkle the spices over the potatoes and toss until evenly coated. Spread the potatoes out in a single layer, with as little overlap as possible.
