Abuelo’s Papas con Chile – Mexican Mashed Potatoes

It’s that time of month again…Crazy Cooking Challenge time! This month’s challenge is mashed potatoes. I instantly knew what I want to make. I had seen Abuelos Papas con Chile recipe over on Mommy Travels and was just waiting for the right time to make them. These will become a staple in our house. They were fantastic!

Simply start by boiling red potatoes that have been quartered.

I then prepped the rest of the ingredients.

Once the potatoes were soft, I added the remaining ingredients – peppers, onions, velveeta, cream cheese, sour cream, cream, garlic and green onions.

I used a hand masher to incorporate all the ingredients into the potatoes.

They were divine smelling. Let’s be honest, I stuck my finger in for a big taste.

I had made carnitas in the crock pot and these potatoes were the perfect side dish.

    i realized that i had a mexican potluck today and only had potatoes as a main ingredient! looking online for mexican potatoes i found your recipe and it was AMAZING. i had to make some alternations because i didnt plan ahead for ingredients, but the cans of green salsa really helped pull off the ‘mexican’ flavor. thank you for sharing!!!
