These wrinkled potatoes, grown in the Canary Islands, are small but full of flavor, and can be served as an appetizer or accompaniment to a main course.

The cooked potatoes are usually accompanied by 2 sauces known as "mojos." The red sauce is made from a mixture of oil, vinegar, and red pepper; this last ingredient adds a touch of spice, hence it is known as "hot sauce." The green sauce is made with green pepper, cilantro or parsley, and garlic, emulsified with oil and vinegar.

The "trick" to wrinkling the potatoes is in their dehydration. In order to achieve this, they should be cooked in a little water—just enough to cover them in the pan—and plenty of salt, over a high heat, uncovered.
