Southwestern Potato Packet

" Remember how much fun it was to make foil packets when you were a kid? They are still a great way to cook. This recipe can be cooked in the oven, on the grill, or to save time and kitchen heat, in the Cuisinart pressure cooker. "


1 sheet (18x24-inches) Non-Stick Foil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
4 medium potatoes, cut in 1/2–inch cubes
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 can (4.5 oz.) chopped green chiles, undrained
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Salsa, chopped fresh cilantro, sour cream


Preheat oven to 450°F or grill to medium-high. (Ignore if using pressure cooker)

Center onions on sheet of Non-Stick Foil with non-stick (dull) side toward food. Top with potatoes. Combine seasoned salt, chili powder and cumin; sprinkle over potatoes. Top with green chilies.

Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal making one large packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes on a cookie sheet in oven OR GRILL 15 to 18 minutes in covered grill. Sprinkle potatoes with cheese. Let stand about 2 minutes until cheese melts. Serve with salsa, chopped fresh cilantro and sour cream. /span
