Posted by on

Ingredients

  • 8 to 12 small red-skinned new potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 med yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 4 large green onions, cut in 1-inch lengths
  • 2 large fresh tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Method

1 Scrub the potatoes; do not peel. Place the potatoes in a large pan, cover with water and boil, covered, until tender when pierced, about 20 minutes. Drain and place in a serving container. Keep warm.

2 Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add chopped onion and green onions and cook until limp. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Stir in the cream, cilantro, oregano, cumin, and salt and pepper to taste. While stirring, slowly add the cheese and cook until the cheese is melted.

3 If potatoes are not small, cut them in halves or quarters. Spoon the sauce over the potatoes.
