DIRECTIONS

  • Bring water to a boil and remove from heat.
  • Add margarine, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and milk. Stir until the margarine is melted.
  • Add the potato flakes. The mixture should be pretty thick and dry.
  • Add a slightly beaten egg and mix well.
  • Let the potatoes sit to cool down.
  • Divide potato mixture into 6 balls.
  • Sprinkle corn starch on one hand and carefully spread one of the potato balls on your hand pushing down in the middle.
  • Place a tablespoon of prepared picadillo in the middle carefully folding the sides over the meat until it is completely sealed.
  • Roll the stuffed balls in corn starch - this will help keep the mixture together during frying.
  • Fry over medium-high heat until golden.
  • Note: all purpose flour can be used instead of cornstarch.
