    Deb's Recipes's Note:

    Posted for Zaar World Tour II, this simple Chilean dish is from Eliana Parra and Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant. Serve it with Salsa De Cilantro (Pebre) Salsa De Cilantro - Pebre and, even though the recipe does not call for it, top it with your favorite grated cheese.

      Good, but kind of greasy for our tastes even after draining the potatoes well. Next time I will boil the potatoes and lightly pan fry instead of deep frying. In itself, this is kind of bland, luckily I tried the recommended cilantro salsa and now THAT was terrific!

      Dishes like this are among my most favourite to fix for a brunch meal because they're tasty, satisfying & so easy to fix. I made it as a breakfast burrito, added fresh chives & cheese & served w/salsa on the side. Yum - My kind of comfort food! Will know tonite if I got a good pic. Thx for posting.

      This was sooo good. DH helped me by cutting the potatoes cause me and knives don't mix. But, I did add some onion cause I love onion and we fried the taters really crispy. This with the salad we made tonight(late tonight)was perfect. Thanks for a quick meal.
