Stuffed Potatoes - Papas Rellenas, Colombia
150 mins (prep 120, cooking 30)
16 ingredients
8-12 servings
Our "Finca" (farm) in Colombia was about 5 hours from my home city of Medellín, although the roads are much better now and you can get there in about two to three hours. For vacation, my parents and I (as well as many relatives and their families) would go to the farms and have wonderful family reunions. We would always take the “ladder bus” that would leave Medellín at exactly 3:30 a.m.. At 7:00 a.m. the bus would always make the breakfast stop at the riverside town of Bolombolo, a dusty, hot town that survived by serving food, providing cheap accommaccommodations and selling trinkets to the buses going by. Since Bolombolo possessed the only bridge across the Cauca River for several hundred kilometers, the bus and trucking trade was very lucrative for the inhabitants. I always looked forward to our stop for breakfast in Bolombolo as this town was famous for its “empanadas” and its “papas rellenas”. I always had two of each with a large cup of hot chocolate. Pure heaven!
