Potato Latkes from Chipotle Texas!

This year, our Texas Mountain Trail non-profit organization participated in a statewide foodways project with Texas Folklife, collecting stories, photos and recipes from some of our region's best food producers.  We thank Chipotle Texas for their cooperation with this great project.

Here's is a a recipe from Fort Hancock's own Chipotle Texas for Potato Pancakes!

2 cups peeled, shredded potatoes
1/4 onion, shredded
1/3 cup chopped green onion
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour (or as needed)
1 1/2 tsp. Sabroso All Purpose Seasoning (or to taste)
1 cup canola oil (or as needed)
  • Place the potatoes in a cloth, and wring them to remove as much moisture as possible.
  • Mix the potatoes, onion, green onion, eggs, flour, and Sabroso All Purpose Seasoning together in a bowl until thoroughly combined. 
  • Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat until it shimmers (oil should be about 1/3 inch deep). Drop about 2 tablespoons of the potato mixture per patty into the hot oil, and flatten the potatoes to make the patties 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick.
  • Brown the patties in the hot oil until golden and crisp on the bottom, about 5 minutes, then flip and cook on the other side.  Drain the latkes on paper towels, and serve hot.
  • A dollop of sour cream or cream cheese and a light sprinkle of one of our Sensational Chef Salts will add a little extra zest.
Take the Fort Hancock exit off I-10, between Sierra Blanca and El Paso and head south about a half a block.  Soon you'll see Chipotle Texas' retail store, where many of their products are sold!
