Potatoes


Stuffed potatoes (papas rellenas)

Cooking instructions: 

Make a potato puree and season only with salt to taste.
Shape into small balls stuffed with canned meat, ham, seafood, cheese or fish.

Coat the balls in beaten egg and ground crackers or breadcrumbs. Fry just before serving.

Bigger ones are made in the same way.

Potato chips (chicharritas de papa)

Cooking instructions: 

Peel the vegetable and cut it into very thin slices. Fry in hot oil until golden brown. Sprinkle with salt at the time of serving. If you wish to store them to serve at another time, put them in a jar or can, but without salt.

Meat with potatoes (carne con papas)

Cooking instructions: 

Chop the meat into 5 or 6 cm. cubes and brown it in hot oil or lard.

Add the salt, the paprika, the pepper and the chopped onion, stir and add the crushed cloves of garlic. After having added the spices cook for 2 or 3 minutes.

Toss in the seedless chopped pepper and tomatoes (or tomato sauce).

Cook for another 5 minutes. Add the wine and the water or stock and when the meat is kind of tender, add the potatoes, peeled and cubed, the raisins, the olives and the capers.

Keep cooking until both the meat and the potatoes are tender.
