The key to getting these potatoes crisp is to boil them first, then fry them in a cast-iron skillet.


Cook potatoes in a saucepan of salted, boiling water for 10 minutes; drain. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.

Fry potatoes in oil until golden, about 5 minutes. Add scallions and jalapeño to skillet; sauté 1 minute, then season with salt and pepper. Remove skillet from heat. Sprinkle cheese over potatoes. Residual heat will melt the cheese.
