Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 Purple Potatoes, peeled & sliced, ½” thick
  • 8 oz Queso Fresco
  • 6 oz. Evaporated Milk
  • 2 Ají Amarillo Chiles from a jar, whole
  • 4 Soda Crackers
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, crushed

Directions

  1. Add potatoes to a pot of cold, salted water and bring to boil. Let boil for about 10 minutes, or until potatoes can be pierced with a fork. As soon as they are done, transfer to strainer and cover with ice to ensure they don’t carry over cook and start falling apart. Once dried, transfer onto a serving plate.
  2. Combine sauce ingredients in a blender and blend on high until smooth. Add more milk as needed and adjust taste with salt if necessary.
  3. Pour a generous amount of the cheese sauce over the potatoes.
  4. Keep it simple and serve as is, or add hard boiled eggs. 

Pro Tips
