Very delicious. I used to eat latkes only with apple sauce and never thought of making them savory. Since Mexican is one of my favourite cusines I loved these.

This is my new favorite Latke recipe. As Latkes tend to be a bit on the heavy, greasy, and did I say heavy side, a bit of freshness is a welcome addition. The Coriander/Cilantro is a breath of fresh air. I also evolved into adding about 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes for a bit more Mexican "spice", and a little Matzo meal for tradition and "texture". I haven't tried the Salsa recipe with the Latkes yet, since I have my own that I'm pretty fond of. But a Salsa and these Latkes together is excellent. Two big, fat thumbs way up! :D
