Pan-Seared Mojo Potatoes

Made these as a side dish last week. They were good (I didn’t think the potatoes would cook that quickly, but they did!), but this didn’t wow us. My 8 year old wanted seconds, but he said to leave off the “green sauce”. The Mojo sauce was good but nothing special. Note: this could be vegan if you use vegan sour cream.
