Papas rellenas is a dish served in various countries of Latin America consisting of mashed potatoes stuffed with seasoned ground meat, various spices then deep fried. The dish varies in preparation and presentation from country to country. Papas Rellenas are a local favorite in heavily Cuban-populated American cities such as Miami and Tampa, in which the Cuban version consists of potato balls stuffed with seasoned picadillo. This dish is also extensively consumed in Puerto Rico, where it is called "relleno de papa."
In Peru, the dish is usually accompanied with a Sarza Criolla, or an aji sauce.
