These are a good alternative to the usual breakfast hash browns. In Costa Rica, it's called 'Gallitos de Papa', which is usually served as a breakfast or brunch dish, most often on top of a corn tortilla and a couple of fried eggs and black beans on the side. But the heat from the habanero flavors the potatoes with a nice savory touch, so they'd make a great side dish for a hearty dinner, too. It's an easy dish to prepare too, and most ingredients are likely to be staple items in your pantry.
