Ensalada de Papa

Cut the potatoes in quarters. Steam them along with the carrots until tender, about 30 minutes. Mash these together with a potato masher, adding a little salt and a lot of pepper, until smooth. The mixture will be finely mashed, but the carrots will show like flecks. Add the jalapenos and peas. The salad will be soft--no cubes of potato--and can be scooped into little mounds.

From Chichen Itza in the Mercado La Paloma.
