For the jalapeño cashew dip:

  1. Add the cashews and hot water to a glass dish or jar. Cover and let soak for 25-30 minutes. Once soaked, drain the water.
  2. Add the cashews, nut milk, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeño and sea salt to a blender and blend on high until smooth. Store covered in the fridge until ready to use.

For the potatoes:

  1. Place the potatoes in a medium-sized bowl, and coat them with lime juice. Drain any excess juice.
  2. Add the oil, chili powder and sea salt and stir until the potatoes are well coated.
  3. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Roast on 400F for 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender with crispy edges. You can check on them after 10 minutes and give them a stir.
  4. Serve immediately with jalapeño cashew dip.


  1. I buy pre-washed baby potatoes to save time. If you don’t have pre-washed, just make sure you wash and scrub the potatoes and pat them dry with a towel before seasoning them.
  2. For this recipe, I used a mix of red, yellow and blue baby potatoes, but you could use whatever variety you like.
  3. If you’re using baby potatoes, cut them in half, or even keep them whole if they are small enough. If you’re using larger potatoes, cut them into quarters, or even smaller.
  4. You’ll want to time your potatoes so they’re ready when you’re ready to eat. If they’re left sitting for too long, they will lose some of their crispness.
  5. I use a Cuisinart air fryer/convection/toaster oven. Depending on your make and model, you may need to adjust the cook time or temperature slightly.
