Patatas Bravas

I tried these at a restaurant the other day, and they were really delicious. We were dining with a Spanish couple, and they said this was a really easy dish to make. Not only is it easy, but it's cheap! We were so hungry, and these were so tasty that we ate it all before I could take a picture. This probably isn't the most traditional recipe, but you can make it with ingredients you probably already have on hand.

5 medium or 10 small potatoes
4 cloves garlic, diced
1 can diced tomatoes
olive oil
hot sauce, to taste
fresh basil or other herbs, to taste
sale & pepper, to taste

1. Dice potatoes. Coat with about 2 tbsp olive oil and bake at 375 for 40-50 minutes, or fry in a wok (which is what we did) for about 15 minutes, until tender.
2. sautee diced garlic in 2 tbsp olive oil. Add tomatoes, hot sauce, herbs, salt & pepper. Bring to a boil, simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Pour tomato sauce onto potatoes.
4. (optional) top with grated cheese (we used cheshire, but cheddar, feta or mozzarella would work too).
