  • 4 large potatoes, washed and scrubbed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with oil.
  2. Cut the potatoes into wedges or cubes, depending on your preference. Place them in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, paprika, chili powder, lime zest, and lime juice until well combined.
  4. Pour the olive oil mixture over the potatoes and toss until they are evenly coated.
  5. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, ensuring they are not overcrowded. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Roast the potatoes in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside, and tender on the inside. Flip the potatoes halfway through the cooking time for even browning.
  7. Once the potatoes are cooked, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a serving platter. Sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro for an extra burst of flavor.
  8. Serve the Mojo Potatoes hot as a delicious side dish or appetizer. Enjoy the irresistible combination of citrusy zest and savory spices!
