  1. Add vegetable oil and real butter to a 10 or 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. As soon as the butter melts add the potatoes and top with chopped onions and spices. Add salt and pepper, I use a half teaspoon each to start.
  3. Cover with a lid and cook for 10-minutes.
  4. Remove cover after 10 minutes.
  5. Flip the potatoes to cook a bit on the other side with the lid off. They should be fork tender.
  6. Keep cooking until you get golden brown that makes you happy then remove from heat.
  7. Adjust seasoning and serve!


Garnish with cilantro, thinly sliced scallions, or even jalapeƱos.
