Helpful hints

  • For homemade red chili sauce see the Chile Colorado Sauce recipe on If using ready-made sauce, select the lowest sodium brand.
  • If you are on a low potassium diet, do not skip the boiling process for potatoes. This is necessary to reduce potassium.
  • An alternative method is to pre-boiled potatoes: peel, cube and soak potatoes in a large amount of water for 2 to 4 hours. The amount of water should be at least five times that of the potatoes.
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder can be substituted for fresh onion and garlic.
  • If you are on a low protein diet, adjust the portion to match your meal plan or ask your dietitian for guidance.

Chile Colorado

This wasn't bad but I don't think it's something that I will make again. It was kind of blah to me. I added some cheese to mine and a little milk to try to make it a little better. I think it had a bit too much chili powder in it. Not because it was hot but because it was just way too strong of a flavor It was editable but nothing to brag about.
