On The Blogs: Recipe For Papa Rellena @ 4 Kids 'N Us Recipes

A papa rellena is a stuffed potato.

In Peru, in the late afternoon,
papa rellena stands sprout on streetcorners. I love the taste of a crispy potato stuffed with seasoned meat, raisins, and egg. There are variations of papa rellenas all over Latin America. I don't know if raisins appear in other versions, but to me they hint of an Arab influence, via Spain.

We've posted a video recipe for
papa rellena here. And now, at 4 Kids 'n Us, they've posted the Disney recipe of papa rellena (with a roasted corn relish, which is definitely NOT the traditional topping!) Yes, I said the Disney version --- apparently prepared at a Disney International Food Festival.

I can't vouch for the recipe, but it's worth a look. Of course, the quality of the potatoes is what makes the difference.

Peruvian food seems to be everywhere these days. On The Blogs is a feature here at Peru Food in which I comment and link to what other bloggers are writing and posting about Peruvian food.
