Two back to back dishes from My Mexico. Shepherd potatoes and scrambled eggs with creme fraiche. Both sounded like they meant for breakfast (Kennedy doesn’t mention a particular meal except that papas pastores are generally served as a botana (snack).
The finished papas dish looks like roasted potatoes with green salsa but the recipe is smarter – it’s a one-pot dish and you build the salsa gradually adding its ingredients to potatoes while you cook them. It allows the aromatics of onion, garlic, jalapenos and herbs to deeply flavor potatoes.
