Air Fryer Potatoes

Even though I follow the trim healthy mama eating plan, I can still have potatoes. We can’t go crazy with them but the purple, red, or waxy are on plan! I love to buy the little bag of baby medley potatoes at Aldi. They keep well in my pantry until I am ready to use them. They take no time at all to prepare and are finished in the air fryer in about 20 minutes. When I made them to go with my Mexican sliders I added some Mexican seasonings like chili powder and cumin, along with the other seasonings. Everyone loved them.

This is the bag I buy at Aldi. They have either 2 or 3 varieties of small potatoes. Red, yellow and purple are the most common ones where I live. I haven’t had many purple ones lately but when they are in there, that is what I put more of on my plate. If you eat a small portion, these will fit in an E.
