Stuffing: Cook In Fry Pan: cilantro, Beef Stock Paste (About 1 Teaspoon), Hot Sauce (If Needed, Per Your Taste), Mushrooms, Hamburger (80/20), 1 Onion, 3 Garlic, Black Olives, 1\2 Jalapeno With Seeds (Use A Whole Jalapeno If You Like It Spicy), Poblano Diced.

Mix Flour With Egg, Salt, Pepper, And Mashed Potatoes, Form A Pattie, And Put Some Of Your Filling In The Center.

Form It Like A Potato, If It Is Hard To Seal Due To Too Much Flour Use Some Water On That Area, And Blend In The Mashed Potatoes So There Is No Seam.

Then Put In On A Floured Plate In The Fridge For A Bit.

King this looks great. For the bread and potato mixture how much flour and how much potatoes for each Papa Rellena?

I have seen this made in many ways. one was was just to use mashed potatoes, then coat the out side with flour, or bread crumbs, or dipped into a batter before frying. when making larger Papa Rellenas I have seen them made with a potato dough, and that's what I did here using 3 potatoes, egg, and maybe 1\4 cup of flour, Salt, Pepper. I actually did not measure the flour, I made them to the fill. It is still fraggle to work with but not as much as using just mashed potatoes.

These look good and I love poblano peppers. Best of all, I think my husband just might try it. Thanks for sharing.

Have you ever put cheese in the mixture?

> "Have you ever put cheese in the mixture?" no, but I am sure it would taste good, maybe a good melting Mexican cheese, and you can get away with calling it authentic :-).
