Chili Potato Wedges

Makes 4 servings
These spiced-up potato wedges are oven-baked, so they're crispy but very low in fat. They're high in energy-boosting carbs, though, packing 5 grams of fiber per serving. What a dish!

Ingredients:4 baking potatoes, cut lengthwise into 12 wedges each
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

To Make:Preheat the oven to 450°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes and oil. Toss well to coat. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, thyme, salt, and red pepper. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the potatoes, tossing well to coat.
Arrange the potato wedges in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the potatoes over and bake for 15 to 17 minutes more, until crisp.
