Fiesta Potato Crisps

25 minute prep | 35 minute cook | makes about 30 crisps


For Potato Crisps

  • 2 russet potatoes, unpeeled, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • sea salt and fresh ground pepper

For Walnut Taco Meat

  • 1 cup walnuts, toasted, if preferred
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Cashew Sour Cream

  • 1 cup of cashews soaked overnight
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup water, depending on desired thickness
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

To Assemble

  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup salsa
  • 2 to 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • freshly ground black pepper

To make the Potato Crisps: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the potato slices in a single layer on the baking sheet and drizzle them with grapeseed oil. Rub the potatoes to disperse the oil evenly. Sprinkle the potatoes generously with salt and pepper.

Roast the potatoes for 30 to 35 minutes, flipping them once halfway through, until tender and lightly browned. Allow the potatoes to cool for 5 minutes before assembling.

To make the Walnut Taco Meat: In a small food processor, combine all ingredients and process into a fine crumble.

To make the Cashew Sour Cream: drain and rinse the cashews, then add them to a blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend on high until smooth.

To assemble, top each potato slice with 1 teaspoon of the Cashew Sour Cream, followed by about 1 teaspoon each of the walnut taco meat, salsa, and green onions, in that order. Garnish with pepper and serve.
