Products Used:

Chipotle Latkes


2 large Russet potatoes, cut lengthwise into quarters

1 large onion, quartered

2 large eggs

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 tsp kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tsp chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced (optional)

Harvest Chipotle Olive Oil, for frying


Using a food processor fitted with a grating disk or a box grater, grate the potatoes and onion. Transfer the mixture to a clean towel and squeeze to wring out as much liquid as possible. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and add the eggs, flour, salt, pepper, and chipotle chili if using. Mix until the flour is absorbed.

Pour about 1/4-inch of oil into a medium, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, use a heaping tablespoon to drop the batter into the pan; you will need to work in batches. Use a spatula to flatten and shape the drops into latke-shaped rounds; cook for about 5 minutes, until the edges are brown and crispy. Flip and continue to cook until the second side is deeply browned, another 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to drain, and sprinkle with salt while still warm.

Serving suggestion: These latkes are great by themselves, but positively sing when paired with a smear of our Cranberry-Pear Applesauce and a dollop of sour cream or Balsamic-whipped goat cheese.
