Recipe Ingredients for Papas Rellenas - Potato Balls

2 pounds mashed potatoes (hot)
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
4 teaspoons corn starch
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound ground beef
4 tablespoons sofrito
4 tablespoons tomato sauce
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
7/10 cups Vegetable oil for deep frying

Recipe Directions for Papas Rellenas - Potato Balls

  1. Mix together the hot mashed potatoes, eggs, butter and 2 teaspoons of cornstarch. Set aside and let cool.

  2. In a frying pan, heat the olive oil. Add the ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Stir to break up the meat.
