Tostones (Potatoes)

In eighteenth-century Mexico and California, a toston was a silver doubloon worth fifty cents. These are round slices of potato in chile sauce named after these silver coins. Although the recipe calls for baking the potatoes, I precooked my potatoes in the microwave by piercing them with a fork and cooking on high for about 5 minutes which really cut back on the prep time. From Rancho Cooking: Mexican and Californian Cooking.
