Abuelo’s Papas con Chile - Mexican Mashed Potatoes - Beyer Beware

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'm not a velveeta fan, but your potatoes look so good that I might not care ;). Seriously, lovely color and I like all your bits of this and that.
