I love potatoes cooked this way! They are so flavorful. You can make them as spicy or mild as you wish. This recipe is for the mild version and it does not contain cayenne pepper. For a spicier version, sprinkle about an eighth of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper when seasoning the potatoes.
First, quarter B size potatoes. Those are the little small round white potatoes with red skin.
Sprinkle some paprika, salt, black pepper, thyme and oregano over the potatoes. I do not usually measure, I just kind of eyeball the seasoning for this recipe.
Put about an inch of water in the bottom of the pot. Stir the potatoes to incorporate the seasonings throughout.
Cover the pot, with the lid tilted a bit to let the steam escape. Cook the potatoes on a medium high fire until soft, stirring often to ensure they do not stick to the bottom of the pot. This will take about 10 - 15 minutes. When the water is almost completely evaporated from the bottom and the potatoes are soft, they are ready to serve.
