Comments on this Recipe

This has become a household favorite!! I usually add blackbeans and corn.

These were really good! The potato mixture reminded me of a hashbrown dish you get at a breakfast place. The serving size (2) was accurate, but it seems like it'd be easy to double this recipe in order to make more if needed. I was too lazy to buy cilantro for these, but my salsa had some in it, so I got some that way. Even if it wasn't in the salsa though, I think you can skip it. I had chipotles in adobo sauce left over from a week before and this was a great way to use one up.
