Take the mixture away from the heat and keep it in a refrigerator for 1 hour.

Take oil in a large saucepan and heat it in a high temperature.

Mix up cilantro and green chile peppers into the mixture of potato and beef.

Put roughly 1 tablespoon of the mixture onto each phyllo sheet.

Fold the sheets into triangles, pressing the edges of the triangles together with moistened fingers.
