We have a number of friends who describe themselves as "just meat and potatoes kind of people." When they ask us about this recipe, this is what we answer: "Take your meat and potatoes and dip them in New Mexico. Give them a good, old-fashioned swish around, then fry ‘em up."

That’s Chile Papas: A quick and easy weeknight meal, or you can serve it with eggs for a weekend brunch that will last you all day!
