Storage tips

You can cook these Mexican potatoes entirely, and after they cooled, place them into an air-tight glass container and refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Reheat in a 350-degree oven for 10-15 minutes for crispy potatoes or in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
To freeze, store the cooked (and cooled) potatoes in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Reheat in a 350-degree oven for 20 minutes or until hot and crispy. You can also reheat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes or until hot.
