    Wow, I just love the filling of the potatoes, chili peppers, to really add "kick" to the flavor.
    Very nice baked, and not fried. A perfect side dish, or just by itself as a great snack!

    Oh gosh it's right before lunch time and your potato puffs are killing me. I love both potatoes and puff pastries and this sounds and looks soooo good! One day I have to make this. I've never used filo sheet so probably I'll try that one instead of reg. puff pastry sheet. Thanks for sharing!
