• Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1  chopped green onion
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1-2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Optional to add- chicken, green chilies, cheese, cilantro, onion, red chili flakes
  • flour
  • oil, enough to fill pan 1/2-inch


Add salt, pepper, chopped onion, beaten egg, flour and anything else to  mashed potatoes. Mixture should be moist enough to work with but not too moist that the patty doesn’t hold shape.  Add more flour or milk to make a good consistency.  Make patties out of mixture. Roll patties through flour. Fry each croquette in shallow oil until brown on all sides.

Cook’s Note: Cook in small batches, giving each croquette at least 2 inches of space around it to not overcrowd the pan. This prevents the croquettes from crumbling while frying.
