These Poblano Breakfast Potatoes are perfect for lazy mornings. Chop ’em up, throw ’em in the oven, and 30-40 minutes later you’ll have a batch of scrumptious papas that will instantly rescue any grumpy heads in the house. You can also use them as an alarm clock because the smell of roasting poblanos will act like a magnet for any morning zombies still hibernating.

  4. Spread the mixture into an even layer on a baking sheet.

  6. Take a final taste for seasoning. Serve immediately.
