STEP 2: Combine 1/2 teaspoon each salt, ground cumin, chili powder, and paprika, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; sprinkle over potatoes.

STEP 3: Bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees F., or until potatoes are brown and tender, turning once.

These all sound so good! I try to eat healthy, but every once and while beans don't seem to cut it, and I have a serious craving for meat! To help give me the protein I need without the extra fat I don't want, I began selling a kitchen tool called "The Burger Buddy Fat Reducer" that can take up to 50% of fat out of cooked hamburgers quickly, and without affecting their taste. If you want to know more, check out: Thanks for a great list of recipes!
