Patatas Bravas

The name of this dish means fierce or angry potatoes, but don't be scared of this Spanish restaurant staple, which involves roasted or fried potato chunks in a spicy tomato sauce. You can easily make the sauce hot or mild, and when it's party time, heat-loving guests can dip their patatas into more of the tomato sauce. Those with milder palates might appreciate the potatoes with a cooler mayonnaise-based sauce that sometimes accompanies the dish.
