Papas Rellenas Al Horno (Oven Stuffed Potatoes)- SRC Post

After taking a break for January to get the New Year in order, Secret Recipe Club is back in action! If you do not already know, Secret Recipe Club is a fun group of bloggers who are assigned a fellow blogger each month (secretly) and chose one recipe from their blogger’s site to recreate for reveal day. I have met many awesome bloggers through this club and love browsing and trying their recipes!

This month I was assigned to Canela Kitchen. The first thing I noticed was that Gloria had a quote from Thick Nhat Hanh on the sidebar of her blog- someone who I LOVE and find very inspirational- so she was immediately on my good side. What made me even more excited? She was from Chile! I knew I would find some exciting ethnic recipe ideas on her site.

After trying to pick between her Polenta Tart, Chicken Tarts and Artichoke & Chicken Lasagna Rolls, I decided to go with these- Papas Rellenas Al Horno. Her recipe was a baked version of a typically fried Chilean dish. For my recipe, I ended up having to add much more flour than her recipe called for. I am not sure if this was because I kind of winged measuring the potatoes or what. Either way, if your dough seems like it needs more flour, just add until it is manageable. These were delicious little pockets, although I don’t really know if I can call them little because I made mine much larger than they were supposed to be. Overall, I was very happy to have Gloria’s blog and am looking forward to following her in the future!

    This is a healthier take on papa rellena. In Cuban cuisine we fry them. Good job.

    Those look great! I’m going to have to make a veg version– do you think it would work better with black beans instead of the turkey, or cheese, or all spinach?

  11. I would think that black beans would be a great addition!

  12. What a great pick… I’m totally loving the sound of that turkey-spinach filling, and I bet the leftovers make a great brown-bag lunch, too. Yum! I’m totally adding these to my must-make list.
