    Spyce's Note:

    This is another simple yet delicious authentic dish from Zacatecas Mexico that my mother taught me how to make! It is important to know that this recipe won’t work well if you don’t use queso fresco. You must use this type of cheese specifically for the recipe to incorporate well, other wise it wont come out. Makes a great side dish.

    3. 3
      Add boiled jalapenos and tomatoes and pulsate the blender 2 or 3 times just so that the tomatoes and the peppers are still chunky in the sauce. Set aside.
    4. 4
      In skillet fry the potatoes until they start to look translucent and remove from fire. It is very important you do this. Don’t fully cook them or else they will end up like mulch latter.

      This was so good. I used two chipotle peppers instead of the jalapeños and a mixture of Oaxaca, Menonita and cotija cheese.
