For the Potatoes:

  • 4 pounds Russet Potatoes , cut up into wedges
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes (more or less to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

For the Avocado Crema:

  • 3 Hass avocados , pitted and peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 scallions
  • 1 green chilli ( or jalapeno)
  • 1/2 cups packed cilantro leaves
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


For the Potato Wedges:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  2. Sprinkle the spices over the potatoes and toss them to coat. Then drizzle the olive oil and toss the potatoes again making sure every potato wedge got coated in spice and olive oil.

  3. Bake the potato wedges for 20 minutes. Lower the heat to 400 and check on the potatoes. You’ll need to toss them and rotate your baking sheet. Bake for another 10-20 minutes until the potato wedges are tender on the inside.

For making the Crema:

  1. In the meantime, take out your Vitamix and place all the crema ingredients in the blender.
  2. Blend for a few seconds until smooth and velvety. Pour the crema into a serving bowl.
  3. Serve the crema with the potatoes and enjoy :)

Recipe Notes

  • Do not skimp on the olive oil when coating the potato wedges. It makes sure they turn crispy when baking in the oven and prevent them from sticking to the sheet pan.
  • Don't have a high-speed blender? You can also use a food processor to make the avocado crema!
