Copycat Taco Bell Fiesta Potatoes - Air fried

Taco Bell's fiesta potatoes are favorite in my home since the beginning, but when they discontinued last year , kids were sad , its like something is missing but now its back on the menu so all good but that teach me that get ready if that happens and to enjoy it any time , why not to make it at home. Its so easy and you can make enough from one potato to feed the family and above all its , air fried so its double happiness. 

You can use standard russet potato since its very high in starch. If you like you can leave the skin on the potatoes or not. You can not limit yourself with just the potatoes bowl, you can make it potato taco, potato burrito and more cheese, guacamole, Pico , sour cream and hot sauce and make a meal out of it. 

Same way you can make Nacho fries too. Instead of cutting potatoes in cubes, cut it length wise. 

Ingredients : 

2 Diced russet potatoes
2 tbsp. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder
salt and pepper as per taste
cheese and sour cream as per the taste
2 tbsp. oil

Method : 

Wash and peel potatoes and cut into 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch cubes. 

Rinse well and pat dry with a pepper towel. 

In a bowl, add flour , onion, garlic , paprika powder, cayenne powder, salt and pepper and mix it. 

Drop potato chunks in to the flour and coat well and then shake off excess flour and keep it aside. 

Heat a pan with oil in it. 

When oil is hot, add seasoned potatoes in it and cook on high flame for 5 minutes. 

Mean time, in your air fryer tray  , put the aluminum foil and take out the potatoes and spread it on single layer. 

Turn on air fryer for air fry mode  for 375 for 15 minutes and cook it. I like to move the sides every few minutes. 

If you think its not ready after 15 minutes , you can air broil it to give that nice brown color. 

Take it out and put it in serving bowl , add the sour cream and nacho cheese to top and enjoy it. 

If you don't want to use air fryer, you can always deep fry it. 

Ended a meal with churros.
