DIRECTIONS

  • Mash the potatoes. Allow potatoes to cool until they are comfortable to handle.
  • Mix the potatoes with the peppers, salt and juice from half a lemon. Knead until it forms a smooth paste. If the potatoes don’t stick together well, add a trickle of vegetable oil and continue kneading until it sticks.
  • In a separate container, season the onion with salt and juice from half a lemon.
  • In another container, shred the chicken and mix it with half the mayonnaise.
  • Separate the potato and chili mixture into portions. For a simple presentation, form into a flat mound on a salad plate. For a more elaborate causa, use a round metal spring mold (or a soup can with both ends cut out).
  • Cover with a layer of the onion mixture.
  • Cover with a layer of the the chicken.
  • (For simple presentation, use one layer of each component. For elaborate presentation, use multiple thinner layers, ending with potato on the top.).
  • Chill before serving. Garnish with the rest of the mayonnaise, lettuce, olives or parsley.
