80--- Firecracker Hot Potatoes

Grilling potatoes can be so easy and so delicious.  But how do you make them special and holiday worthy?  You add some 'bang'! 

These are spicy!  You can adjust the amount of cayenne you use to your tastes.  I also recommend serving with a cool side of plain low fat yogurt for dipping.

Firecracker Hot Potatoes
Serves 4

1 1/2 lb fingerling potatoes, washed
1 Tbsp hot sauce (I like Valentina's- it has a nice vinegary base)
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds

Preheat grill to high heat.  Place potatoes in a bowl and drizzle with hot sauce and olive oil. toss to coat.  Sprinkle with remaining spices, tossing again to coat.

Place potatoes on metal or soaked wooden skewers.  Place potatoes on grill, then reduce heat to medium.  Grill for 10-12 minutes, then flip and grill for additional 8-10 minutes.  Depending on the size of your spuds, they may take more or less time so be your own judge of doneness.  Remove from heat when skins are crisp and insides are tender (but not fall apart mushy).
