Water to cover
For the mojito verde:
2 medium green peppers
1-2 serrano chiles (or something similar)
Handful of coriander leaf (you could use parsley)
tsp cumin seeds
tsp salt
3-4 cloves garlic, peeled
1 slice of bread, without crusts
2 tbsps sherry vinegar (white wine vinegar will do)
Olive oil
For the mojito rojo:
2 medium red peppers
1-2 hot red chiles (Thai bird peppers, chile de arbol)
1 tsp Spanish paprika
3-4 cloves garlic , peeled
tsp cumin seeds
tsp salt

2 tbsps red wine vinegar
Olive oil

Method:
  • Put the potatoes in a pan and add the salt. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Cook for about 20 minutes.
  • Pour off the water, leave the potatoes in the pan, and put the lid on.
Mojito Verde:
  • Clean the peppers, removing seeds, stalk and veins. Do the same with the chiles.
  • Cut up the slices of bread and soak in the vinegar

Mojito Rojo:
