Curry leaves+cumin+potatoes+roasted poblanos = Taco fillling

This post should really be titled,'Lazy taco filling' or  ' How to make people feel you have slaved hours in the kitchen'. There really isn't a recipe. You preheat the oven and chop up some potatoes into a baking dish. Then you swirl around some oil.  Toss spices over the potatoes, shake it about and put it in the oven. While the potaoes are roasting, you take a pobalno pepper (Pasilla pepper) and roast it directly above a gas flame. If you don't have a gas stove; put the peppers under the broiler. When it is nicely blackened on all sides, put it in a bowl and cover it with a lid allowing it to steam. After about 40 minutes or so, when your potatoes are ready, pull them out of the oven and then add the roasted, peeled and chopped poblanos.
For the recipe
Oven  - 375 degrees ( Convection Roast)
Russet potatoes  -4 diced
Cumin seeds - 1tsp
Curry leaf powder - 1 shake around the baking pan
Chilly powder or paprika - 1/2 tsp or to taste

Variations: Substitute yams or sweet potatoes for the russet
