We love spicy, ethnic foods at my house and this can be made as spicy as you like (or don't like). This recipe was created for my now extinct cafe when a Reggae band was playing. I've eaten these cold for lunch many times and they were wonderful. The dough recipe is great for fried pies or Jamaican patties as well. I always make double the filling so that I can just pull some out of the freezer when ready to make these so it's super easy. Also, many times I add more veggies to the potato filling to make it more interesting. It's easiest to fry these in a deep fat fryer but pan frying works great as well.
