Hot Pepper Potatoes

Watch my aunt Zia Laura share traditions about her mother, Filomena’s, signature hot pepper potatoes. This recipe and tradition comes all the way from Pesche, Italy where my aunt and her family grew up. At any family function, you can be sure to see these hot pepper potatoes on the table, and they taste like perfection every time.

Side note, if you are not one for the heat, you may want to stay away from this recipe. 🙂

You will need:

  • Four medium red potatoes, use red because they’re firmer 
  • Salt 
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 dry red chili peppers 
  • 1 tsp red chili flakes 


  • Boil the potatoes skin on 
  • Once potatoes are cooked peel the skin off
  • Slice them very thin 
  • Season with salt 
  • Sautee olive oil in a pan with chili peppers roasted the pepper a bit and then add chili flakes 
  • Pour the mixture on the potatoes 
  • Mix well
