Making brunch, thought I'd try my hand at one of these.
First dice your potatoes and put them in a pot of cold water with some salt and a dash of vinegar. PROTIP: Using a memesteel weebknife will make your food taste better
After all the potatoes are chopped, bring the water to a boil, then turn down the heat and let it simmer for a few minutes
I do. It just didn't make it into the picture. As for why the potatoes look like that, I like leaving the skin on but these potatoes are really old and had sprouted already.
We're parboiling them
i see, it looked like you tried to peel them with your knife and gave up lol
parboiling isnt a reason to not bring your water to a boil first i think, its more a matter of preference as starting with boiling water normalizes cooking time
it also lowers the risk of the water boiling over if you leave your stove because you dont want to stand there for 10 minutes watching a pot of water
Dump half a can of chipoltes in adobo that have been sitting in your freezer even longer than the potatoes have been sitting on top of it into a blender, because you don't own a food processor
Good to know. Most recipes I've seen say to start with cold water. I just never really questioned it
Sorry guys, had to prioritize the meal over this post.
After the potatoes are softened somewhat, drain them
Throw it all into a skillet with salt, cumin, hot paprika, a little oil, and a fuckton of black pepper
Not exactly haute cuisine, but it sure as hell tasted good
