Potato Cheese Croquettes With Chipotle Aioli

“I found a few recipes for potato croquettes here on 'Zaar and sort of melded them together. The chipotle sauce is almost identical to Potato Cheese Croquettes With a Chipotle Sauce, but I have changed the recipe for the croquettes. The variation is fantastic! How can you deny the goodness of deep-fried potato and cheesiness? These also work well for the freezer.”
