When I first read this recipe I thought O'Brien was the brand name . After talking to my mother and learning it was a diced potatoes, I found them in the Ore Ida brand . I fixed this last night and my family really liked it . The grandkids came back for seconds . I will be making this again

We are a "tater" lovin' family. The shortcut of frozen ingredients is certainly a great help for a working mom. I served with chicken and will preparing this week as a side with beef. Husband and kids asked me to make it again. This was great!

I have been on a peanut oil kick as of late, so I used peanut oil. Also, I like really spicy food, so I added some crushed red pepper flakes as well.

Spicy Skillet Potatoes was easy to make but I found them to be way to spicy for me. I found between the canned diced tomatoes and chilies and chil powder, that the taste was just overwhelmingly burn your mouth hot. I would try this recipe again with plain canned tomatoes and no chili powder.
