My hubby travels a lot for business and eats at a lot of places,and when he tells me had a half way descent meal somewhere I try and make that exact dish tens times better so he remembers whose cooking is better(hehehe) Got to keep him coming back to my kitchen! And Happy AT That! :P
So I threw together theses amazing potato pancakes this morning, and they were a HUGE hit! Yet for me, He had plain Jane potato pancakes at IHOP while in Oklahoma, and so I took it up a few notches!!!! And it was well worth it:) I hope these find there way your breakfast table soon or even dinner! Enjoy!

How to Make Mexican Potato Pancakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat a large skillet with oil, lard or butter (I use lard) on medium heat.
  2. Shred potatoes (with skin) with a grater or food processor, dice onions and place grated potatoes and onion in large colander and drain well. Using hands, squeeze to extract as much liquid as possible. (VERY IMPORTANT)
  3. Transfer mixture to large bowl. Mix in the rest of the ingredients, MINUS the lime juice.
  4. mix with hands and make into patties flat patties and place on hot skillet, flipping when cakes have become golden brown.
  5. Remove from skillet and place on a plate top with fresh squeezed lime juice, and sour cream and my homemade Verde Salsa.
  6. This is for a HUGE Batch:
    Tomatillo Verde Salsa

    This is for a smaller batch: Chile Relleno's with Shrimp and Salsa Verde
  7. This was so good, I was pretty impressed with myself on this dish, I will be making these from here on out. I did place these with eggs too :)
  8. Hope these find their way to your table top soon! Enjoy!
