Instructions
At home:
  1. First, make the mashed potatoes. Boil potatoes until soft. Drain water, return to pot, and mash with a potato masher. Add rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper, and stir until combined. Spread potatoes on parchment paper and place on a drying screen. Dehydrate until all moisture is removed and potatoes are completely crispy and crack (rather than bend) when broken. Pulse dried potatoes in a food processor.
At camp:
  1. Rehydrate potatoes by soaking in filtered water in a cooking pot. Add more filtered water and olive oil, and cook potatoes until hot. Add machaca and more filtered water. Stir, and serve. Add more salt as needed.
