Soul in a Bowl / Spicy home fries with cream
Have a stock of boiled potatoes in your fridge and when the craving arrives, use them to whip up this intensely flavorful comfort food.
Ingredients (for four servings):
6 medium potatoes
2 tbs. olive oil
2 tbs. butter
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
1 hot green chili pepper, chopped finely
1 tsp. sweet paprika
3/4 c. sweet cream (15%-fat cream can be used )
coarse Atlantic sea salt
Boil the potatoes in their skins in a pot filled with water and a dash of salt, until they are almost ready (takes around 15 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes ).
Drain and let chill for a few hours in the refrigerator.
Peel the potatoes and cut into cubes of approximately 1.5 centimeters.
In a large pan, preferably Teflon-coated, heat the olive oil and butter and fry the onion, chili and potatoes together over a high flame.
When the potatoes and onions are golden brown, add the paprika and black pepper and continue frying another minute or two. Add the cream, bring to a boil and remove from heat.
Season liberally with coarse salt and serve immediately.
