READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by threeovens

This side dish is essentially boiled potatoes with a sauce consisting of a sofrito (mixture of tomatoes and herbs) with cheese poured over top. If you don't like some of the flavors (like cilantro) you can substitute what you do like (like parsley). A simple, versatile side dish that goes well with any meat dish. The recipe calls for white cheese which can be white cheddar or use Swiss or Monterey Jack, whatever you like.
