    I stumbled upon this website like it was a pot of gold in the bush! I am a Canadian, married to a Colombian (from Bogotá). We lived there for almost 2 years, but now we’re back in Canada and I’ve seemed to forget how to do all that Colombian cooking. But today I made some of your recipes and surprised my husband and he was thrilled!!
    Así qué gracias, gracias, gracias!! Por favor no dejas de subir éstas recetas tan buenísimas!

    I was going to make this great dish today but I stumbled over the relative amounts of potatoes and seasoning? Is there a typo somewhere? It sounds like an awful lot of seasoning for just 1/2 pound of potatoes.

      I believe the amount of potatoes was supposed to be 1 1/2 (1.5 pounds) of potatoes. I made the recipe with 1 1/2 pounds and the seasoning was perfect. ¡Qué rico!

      I usually keep it for about 3 to 5 hours. If you place the sauce in the fridge, mix it well before serving!
