"Delicious - please make these again". Well, I will! I cooked the potatoes on the stove, drained them, returned them to the stove top and threw in the milk and sour cream instead of yogurt to warm them up - I find they incorporate better when they are warmed. I also used just the adobo sauce as I was in a hurry and did not have time to mince. Omitted the salt, enough salt in the sauce. I had these with a spicy Greek sausage, but they would be great with a pork chop, or turkey or chicken or beef patty. Or fish. Or by themselves. Thanks for posting.
