It’s that time of the 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!
Abuelos Papa con Chile
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.
