Ingredients

    1 1/2 lb Yukon Gold potatoes

    1 garlic clove, finely chopped

    1/3 cup plus 1/2 cup finely chopped scallions, divided

    6 tbsp La Fe Vegetable Oil, divided

    1/2 tsp La Fe Ground Cumin 

    La Fe Black Pepper 

    La Fe Sazon 

    3/4 cup La Fe Coconut Milk 

    1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter

    6 oz La Fe Queso Fresco 

Directions

  • STEP ONE

    Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch pieces. Cover potatoes with cold water in a medium pot, then stir in 1 teaspoon salt and simmer until very tender, about 18 minutes.

  • STEP TWO

    While potatoes simmer, cook garlic and 1/3 cup scallions in 2 tablespoons La Fe vegetable oil in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in La Fe cumin and 1/4 teaspoon La Fe black pepper and La Fe sazon and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add La Fe coconut milk and bring to a bare simmer, then remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until combined well. Keep peanut sauce warm, covered, off heat.

  • STEP THREE

    Drain potatoes, then mash in a bowl.

  • STEP FOUR

    Cook remaining 1/2 cup scallions with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon La Fe black pepper in 2 tablespoons La Fe vegetable oil in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until scallions are softened, then stir into potatoes along with La Fe queso fresco. Form potato mixture into 8 balls and flatten each into a 3-inch patty.

  • STEP FIVE

    Heat 1 tablespoon La Fe vegetable oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot, then fry cakes in 2 batches, turning over once, until crusty, about 6 minutes per batch. Add remaining tablespoon La Fe vegetable oil for the second batch.

  • STEP SIX

    Gently reheat peanut sauce, thinning to a creamy consistency with a little water if necessary. Season sauce with salt and serve with potato cakes.
