Chili Lime Roasted Potatoes

The past few weeks have been so fun as a movie my husband assistant directed 1 1/2 years ago was released with wide press and high praises. It is called Palo Alto and was directed by Gia Coppola and Emma Roberts and James Franco starred in it. The Today Show last week interviewed Gia and James and then later Hoda and Kathy Lee interviewed Gia and the male lead, Jack Kilmer (Val's son). During both interviews they showed a picture of the movie set and Jeffrey is right in the middle!  Here is the link to the clip:

Then we went to the Arc Light to see it and, it was great! I took pictures of Jeffrey's name as it scrolled on the credits!

I have been making these potatoes with our BBQ dinners lately. They are a perfect side dish!

Chili Lime Roasted Potatoes
4 golden potatoes, or whichever ones you would like to use (you can even use sweet potatoes!)
1 lime, zested and juiced
1/2 Tbsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2-3 Tbsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 425
 Zest Lime.
 Mix lime zest with kosher salt.
 Slice potatoes whichever way you would like. You can make them wedges or fries or chips..
 Mix potatoes with kosher salt and lime zest.
 Add chili powder and cayenne pepper. Slowly drizzle in olive oil as you are tossing.

 Spread potatoes onto a greased baking sheet. Then juice the lime right over the potatoes. Shake the pan to ensure all the potatoes get evenly juiced.
 Bake for 12 minutes, then remove pan from oven and turn potatoes. Place back in the oven for 5 more minutes or until crisp.
 Serve alongside your grillins!
