SPECIAL EQUIPMENTMedium Saucepan
INGREDIENTS2 large or 4 medium russet baking potatoes, peeled
Toppings:½ cup diced fresh tomato
(We add them all for triple the YUM!)
Preheat the oven to 450º.
Put whole peeled potatoes in a large pot and cover with water to parboil.
Place pot on the stovetop and bring to a boil. Then, turn the heat off, cover the pot with a lid and let rest for 15 minutes.
While the potatoes are cooking, prep the guacamole. Click here for our full recipe. And, season the steak on all sides with a generous sprinkle of Olé Olé seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil.
When the potatoes are fork tender, yet firm, they are done. Run them under cool water to stop the cooking process, then slice into ¼” rounds.
Arrange potato slices on a parchment paper covered cooking sheet and sprinkle with The Original seasoning then, drizzle with olive oil. Toss potatoes to coat completely.
Place in the oven and roast for about 10 minutes, then turn over and roast for another 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
While the potatoes are finishing, cook the steak. Heat a skillet with a little oil until nearly smoking. Flap steak is best when served at about medium rare so it only takes a few minutes to cook. Depending on thickness, this will only take about 2-3 minutes per side. When steak is done, take it out of the pan and let it rest for approximately 10 minutes. After meat has rested, slice across the grain into ½” strips and then into bite size cubes.
When potatoes are cooked to a golden brown, remove them from the oven and arrange the slices in an overlapping flower petal pattern lining the bottom of a cast iron skillet.
Turn on the broiler.
Next, sprinkle cheese on the potatoes. Then add a layer of steak and cover with the remaining cheese. Put the skillet in the oven and broil for 3-5 minutes until the cheese is melted and browned.
Remove the skillet from the oven and add toppings, starting with chopped tomatoes, onions and jalapenos, then drizzle with salsa and add the scoops of crema and guacamole. Serve with cold beers or our refreshing Zeeladas for extra zing!

Latkes... known by many names including "Potato Pancakes," are a comfort food in many cultures around the world. Our recipe features fresh zucchini, and is reminiscent of the classic old-world recipe where potatoes were not readily available. Plus, it's a great way to add a healthy serving of green to your meal.
