5. Soup Southwestern-style potato soup

Combine a cold weather staple with south-of-the-border spice with Southwestern Chipotle Vegetable Soup—quick, simple, and satisfying. This is a chunky, fully loaded bowl of red and yellow Little Duos, zucchini, carrots, fire-roasted tomatoes, and celery in a chicken broth base flavored with cumin and smoky chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Garnish with creamy avocados, fresh cilantro, and, if you like the heat, jalapeños.

4. Oh so French Nicoise salad

Nicoise salad is a classic. And Green Goddess dressing has been, too, since the 20s when a San Francisco chef introduced it, paying homage to a famous theater actor. This version spotlights savory A Little Garlic & Parsley. Tuna Nicoise Salad with Avocado Green Goddess Dressing matches tender Little Potatoes with high-protein canned tuna, hardboiled eggs, crunchy cooked green beans, and baby arugula. The secret sauce, though, is this light version of the traditional favorite named for its color, usually made with anchovies, sour cream, and mayo. This Green Goddess instead melds avocado, garlic, and lemon juice with a dash of cayenne and salt for a tangy result.

3. Fast late-winter comfort potato dish 

Slow Roasted Potatoes, Turnips, and Apples complement any roasted meat and round off the meal with seasonal flair. Pair herbed pork tenderloin or grilled chicken with this simple pan dish, a sweet-savory combo of tart Granny Smith apples, earthy turnips, and tri-color Little Trios—all oven roasted til golden brown, creamy, and caramelized. Toss in a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, and dried cranberries to enhance. You’ll love the aromas filling the kitchen.

2. Try these cheesy latkes

Potato fans will adore Cheesy Mashed Potato Pancakes, a nice filling breakfast or brunch staple. Serve alongside scrambled eggs and a watermelon-feta fruit salad seasoned with fresh mint. There are only five ingredients and the pancakes take just minutes to prep. Bonus: you’ll use up those leftover mashed potatoes.

1. Loaded slow cooker sensation

If you like potatoes, you like them boiled, baked, mashed, or grilled—it’s all good. But Loaded Crock Pot Little Potatoes takes it to the next level. This dish yields tender potatoes coated in the works, much like Nachos: shredded cheddar, green onions, bacon, garlic, and paprika, topped with sour cream. The whole thing simmers for two or three hours, allowing the flavors to mix and mingle. This dish is also simple to the max: just toss in the ingredients and turn on the Crock Pot. Done!
