Papas Chorreadas – Colombian Potatoes with Cheese Sauce

Papas chorreadas are a red potato and creamy cheese dish in Colombian cuisine. They are served with onions and tomatoes. The name derives from the verb chorrear meaning to flow or pour and the sauce is intended to overflow the potatoes. Ingredients include red potatoes, onions, tomatoes, cream, and a mild melted cheese. Alternative recipes use spring onions, crumbled bacon topping, fresh coriander, cumin, and chilli powder or chilli peppers.

Papas Chorreadas - Colombian Potatoes with Cheese Sauce
Ingredients
  • 6 medium red potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 - 4 spring onions, cut into 2 - 3 cm julienne strips
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 200 g tomatoes, diced
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder (optional)
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese ( or other salted white cheese that melts well)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Partially peel the potatoes and place in a medium saucepan with sufficient water to cover them. Season with salt to taste, cover and bring to a boil on high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 40 minutes or until tender.
  2. To make the sauce heat the olive oil in a large pan on medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the diced tomato and season with the cumin and chilli powder (if using). Cook for about 5 minutes (or until the tomatoes are tender).
  4. Add the cream, cheese and season (to taste) with salt and pepper. Cook the sauce until it thickens (about 5 minutes).
  5. Once the potatoes are cooked and drained, serve them and cover them well with the sauce.
