  • 1
    Use a potato press to crush the potatoes until they’re creamy and no lumps remain. Add salt and pepper to taste, and combine well.
  • 2
    In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat, and sauté the onion and garlic for 2 minutes.
  • 3
    Add the peppers, zucchini, vinegar, tomato paste, oregano, salt and pepper to taste, and continue stirring for another 5 minutes.
  • 4
    Add the green beans and Parmesan cheese, stir once and turn off the heat.
  • 5
    Place the eggs and flour in two bowls, side by side. Beat the eggs with a fork.
  • 6
    Dip your hands in flour, and place 1/3 cup of potatoes in the palm of your hand. Flatten it with your other hand.
  • 7
    Place 1/4 cup of vegetable filling in the center of the potato.
  • 8
    Cover the filling with another 1/3 cup of potatoes, and start closing it and shaping it into an oval with your hands.
  • 9
    Repeat with the rest of the potatoes and filling.

    In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Run each papa rellena through the egg, coating the whole surface, and then through the flour. Fry the potatoes, side by side, turning them over every 30 seconds or 1 minute on each side, until they’re completely golden brown.
