Mediterranean Vegetable Chip Crusted Chicken
Latkes, lat-kee, lat-kuh, potato pancakes, fritters, lakes (what I say, because I have awful grammar and am obviously not jewish).
Whatever you decide, know one thing. They are good!
Crispy, spicy, cheesy and delicious!
I was flipping through one of my many food magazines I subscribe to (I am a complete magazine hoarder! I love um! Oddly, I do not like the trashy ones though) and saw a simple recipe for latkes. Then flipping through another magazine when I saw yet another recipe for these simple little pancakes. I’m telling you, it was a sign. Well at least this is what I am telling myself. I needed to make me some latkes. Now!
The thing is, I can not follow a recipe for the life of me! Seriously, give me a recipe and I will end up changing 3/4 of it and making a completely different dish. Which again is another odd thing because this is not my personality. Total type A here! In life I follow directions, am a total clean freak, and do not like to stand out. In my cooking however I seem to take on another personality. I guess, it must be my way of rebelling! Yeah, that is totally it.
So, yeah I definitely invented my own latke. I hope it does not offend and of my Jewish readers, but I am pretty sure you will love um! They are definitely not your average potato latkes. I spiced them up with some smoky chipotle peppers, which I seem to be mildly obsessed with lately! Then the cheddar cheese happened……….of course. Really everything is better with cheese!
You can serve these as an appetizer or side dish or with some eggs for breakfast on a Sunday morning. They are perfect for holiday entertaining. I promise everyone will love them, serve as and appetizer or side along with some greek yogurt for topping.

Ok, now I need to do some Christmas shopping. Help. I am SO behind. Major panic mode has begun!
These look delicious! Can you tell me how much flour you used? It says only 1/4 🙂
Sorry for the confusion, you want to use 1/4 cup. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
Only 1 potato? I’m wondering how many this makes. I’m thinking just a couple? 3 or 4? I am making them for 7 or 8 people so I’m not sure how many times to multiply the recipe.
The recipe will make about 4-6 depending on the size of the potato. I would triple the recipe and use 3 potatoes. Happy Holidays! ?
Made these last night and they were AWESOME !!! My husband and I LOVED THEM ! Thank you for the recipe! I did use all the spicy stuff including 2 chipotles because we like it spicy .
YA!! So happy you loved these!! I need to make them again!
I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I don’t know who
you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if
you are not already 😉 Cheers!
No adobo around here so substituted diced jalapenos and chipotle salsa. HOLY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Holy Yes!!!! So glad you like these!! Thank for trying the recipe and letting me know you love them!!
These sound fantastic! I love the addition of cheddar and chipotle – I just made some apple-cheddar latkes (which were delicious!) so I’m positive these will be wonderful as well. 😀
Nom nom nom!
These look fabulous! I never would have thought of spicing up Latkes this way.
We like the heat around here so it is ALWAYS an option!
How do you do it? How do you get so many luscious delicious meals and posts made each week?
Yum! Looks amazing. Check out this chipotle paste in a tube…solves the problem of dealing with those messy cans:
