Recipe: Chipotle & Rosemary Potatoes

Made up a new recipe tonight based a recent meal at Marco's mexican
restaurant locally.  They were happy to dry grill the veggie fajitas and the
new potatoes that came with them (normally grilled with chipotle butter).
Well, I didn't have time to make chipotle paste, but this worked out great
with ground chipotle from Penzey's.

All measurements are approximate . . . I didn't measure anything.

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  15      small         red new potatoes (tiny ones, 1-2")
     1/8  teaspoon      chipotle pepper -- ground
   1                    rosemary sprig
   6                    peppercorns
   1      sprig         epazote
     1/4  teaspoon      chipotle pepper -- ground
          dash          salt
     1/4  teaspoon      rosemary -- chopped

Boil first ingredients 10 minutes, or until potatoes are knife-tender.
Drain, discarding the peppercorns and rosemary sprig (only the woody part is
left anyway!).

Cut potatoes in half while warm.  In large mixing bowl, add potatoes to
spices and mix until coated.

Grill (stovetop steam grill is what I used) or heat on griddle until
slightly dried and not-quite-blackened.

SERVING IDEAS: We loved these with mexican cornbread, grilled zucchni and
onions, and a tossed salad.

NOTES : Measurements are approximate.  I snipped about 4" of rosemary and
maybe 6 epazote leaves from the garden to boil with potatoes.  I'll bet this
is good without the epazote, too, but I had it so I used it.  The smell of
these potatoes boiling is wonderful!
