    I lived in Peru for a year and a half and loved eating papa rellena. This unfortunately didn't turn out anything like it (taste wise). I was leaving room for some differences in ingredients, but the whole recipe turned out really bland for me. I would definitely suggest adding some sort of spice or seasoning to the potatoes. They completely over took the meat mixture.
