Another imitation of my trip to Costa Rica. A very typical side dish: potatoes cooked and served in corn tortillas, called “gallitos” in Costa Rica. ("Potatoes" are potatoes).


3 large potatoes
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon ground paprika or achiote seeds (if you can find it)
4 corn tortillas
2 teaspoons chopped cilantro, if desired, as a garnish

Peel the potatoes and dices into small pieces.

Sauté the finely minced garlic in the oil and add a little salt, about 1 tsp.

Add the potatoes, sugar, and paprika.

Cover the skillet and cook over low heat, about 20 minutes, adding water as needed to prevent the potatoes from sticking.

Remove and serve the corn tortillas, which you can heat in the oven on a 200 ° F baking sheet.

Garnish, to taste, with chopped cilantro, salt, and pepper.

Also, a little sour cream or sauce is often served as a side.
