A yummy Mexican snack of potatoes, baked with a cheesy stuffing. Papas Con Quesco has the pleasant flavour of potatoes and cheese, dotted with green chillies, and laced with hot and sweet sauce.

It is quite a fascinating experience, with its enjoyable texture and exotic taste. You can serve it as a snack or as a starter.
