    Mrs B's Note:

    This recipe comes from “Preserved” by Nick Sandler and Johnny Acton. I haven’t made it, but it sounds like a good vegetarian main dish or go with anything side dish. The recipe calls for 8 potatoes, but the authors fail to specify a size or weight. As there is no instruction to cut or slice the potatoes, my guess is that you’ll need 8 medium potatoes or between 1 and 1 1/2 lbs, depending on how and what you plan to serve this with.

    SAUCE

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix the lemon juice and dried chillies in a bowl, season with salt and pepper, add the onion rings and leave to marinate until required (you could do this step more in advance if you like).
    2. 2
      Boil the potatoes in lightly salted water for about 15 minutes, or until cooked.
    3. 3
      While the potatoes are cooking make the sauce by combining all the ingredients except the olive oil in a blender; then heat the oil in a pan, add the blended sauce ingredients and simmer for about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens.
    4. 4
      TO ASSEMBLE THE DISH: drain the potatoes and place in a warmed serving dish, pour the sauce on top; drain the onion rings and scatter them and the chili strips over the top of the dish; garnish with hard-boiled eggs and olives.

      Beautiful potato dish! I was surprised at how easy this dish was to put together...great instructions! I cubed the potatoes and then boiled them as Pot Scrubber did. The onions were such a great complement to this dish as was the garnish - I would not forgo the garnish. The sauce was excellent. The only thing i did differently was to add serrano peppers to the cheese sauce.

      A very nice dish with a lovely flavor. I didn't change the ingredients at all but I did vary the cooking technique. I cubed the potatos and boiled. After the sauce was ready I assembled it in a casserole dish, topped with additional cheese, and baked at 400 til the cheese melted. A very nice mexican version scalloped potatoes.
