  • 1 cup high quality olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Add either 3 tbsp of Molli Acapulco Marinade or Molli Oaxaca Marinade
  • Salt to taste.
  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes sliced lengthwise into 1/2″ thick wedges
  • 2 Sweet Potatoes sliced lengthwise into 1/2″ thick wedges
  • Olive Oil (for frying)
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp Spanish smoked paprika (preferably hot or a 1/2 blend with sweet smoked)
  • Garlic salt to taste



  1. Blend together 1 cup olive oil, egg, lime juice and Acapulco or Oaxaca marinade until creamy, about 1 minute. Pour mixture in a bowl, season with salt to taste and set aside.

Patatas bravas:

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. In batches, fry potatoes and sweet potatoes over medium heat in 1/4″ of pure olive oil. Turn over as first side turns golden brown, around 3 minutes. Add additional oil if needed between batches. Place cooked pieces over a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Keep in a warm oven as you fry.
  2. Meanwhile, mix cumin, cocoa powder, spanish paprika and garlic salt in a bowl. When you finish frying all potatoes and sweet potatoes, season in batches by tossing wedges with 1/2 tbsp of spice mix in a metal mixing bowl until evenly and well coated. Transfer to a platter and drizzle with some of the aioli and garnish with parsley and oregano leaves. Provecho!
