If you have been following along on our Instagram than you would know we are gearing up for our favorite food holiday of the year over here, Cinco de Mayo!! 

In case you haven’t noticed, we have a thing for Mexican inspired food here at B&B. There is not a week that goes by that we don’t indulge in some form of enchilada, taco, or taquitos. Living in So Cal we are surrounded by some of the best Mexican food in the world, but it’s the recipes that we make at home that we love the most.

I have been making paprika roasted potatoes for quite some time now, but it wasn’t until recently that I discovered tossing my families favorite potatoes with my cilantro pesto. Talk about a match made in heaven! Slightly smokey potatoes that are crisp on the outside and tender on the inside with just the right amount of tangy cilantro pesto tossed in at the finish. Pure potato bliss!

    I’ve been loving TJ’s fingerlings lately, and smoked paprika is my fave way to season them, so it looks like I am going to have to try your pesto!

    I made some paprika potatoes the other day and am now wishing I had made pesto to go with them. This sound like such a great combination!
