Papas Fritos Con Chilies (Fried Potatoes With Chilies)

“This is a great potato patty, even with left over potatoes if they are fried (grate them). Most often made using left over mashed potatoes. It is not a hot dish using green mild chilies (can zip it up if you want with hot jalapeno). You can speed this recipe up with store bought mashed potatoes.”
